The American Heart & Stroke Association (Santa Barbara Chapter)
May 3, 2014
The American Heart Association presents “Heart Beach Ball,” an event to raise funds for research and initiatives preventing heart disease. The American Heart Association is committed to helping our children live stronger, healthier lives with education, research and public policies that effect where they live, learn and play.
New information in the areas of congenital heart defects, heart transplants in children, cholesterol levels in teens and diabetes rates in children as well as adolescents
are just a few areas we are currently investigating.
For the second year we are continuing our fight against youth obesity, a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, in Santa Barbara County.
The Healthy Futures Program seeks to empower students and their families to make healthier lifestyle choices by providing them with an understanding
of heart disease, nutrition education and encouraging them to be more physically active.
Dr. Joseph Aragon & the AHA team outdid themselves again!
