Here at Jefferson, we are participating with the American Heart Association’s 2020 Heart Walk Digital Experience in an effort to raise funds to fight heart disease and stroke. COVID is now the #3 cause of death only behind heart disease and cancer - and now that number is over 200,000. The AHA needs us, our community is counting on us and our patients look to us to deliver the best care. I invite you to support our constituents by making a lifesaving gift to the AHA’s Heart Walk today.
Together, we’re relentlessly fighting COVID-19 by helping people stay healthy through providing trustworthy information and the AHA is also going deeper into the science of COVID-19 in three critical areas: a registry, research grants and resuscitation, thanks to dedicated supporters and generous donors. During this unprecedented time, your gift will allow the AHA to continue to provide urgent assistance locally to those right here in our community. Because of donors like you, the AHA has been able to pivot quickly to support those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by:
- Providing emergency food relief in North and West Philadelphia
- Investing in research to help us better understand the link between COVID-19 and its interaction with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases
- Providing at-home health kits, including a blood pressure cuff, thermometer, and educational resources, to help individuals manage hypertension from the safety of their home
- Strengthening the chain of survival by reminding the public that hospitals are still the safest place to be in the event of a heart attack, stroke, or other medical emergency
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
