The American Heart Association has its origins in the early 20th century as the Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease. Formed in 1915 by a group of concerned social workers and medical professionals, the association sought to identify treatments and cures for heart disease through studies held in New York City and other major metropolitan areas. The growth of these study groups and associations throughout the United States led six cardiologists to form the American Heart Association in 1924.
Following the association’s first major national fundraiser in 1949, the organization saw considerable growth. Internal reorganization during the 1980s allowed the association to become a visible advocate for public health, and further efforts in the new millennium have resulted in the current American Heart Association and its resourceful approach to promoting health for all Americans.
