In the U.S., health inequities are systematic differences in the health status of different groups, and are the result of barriers such as racism, poverty, discrimination, lack of affordable housing, quality education and access to health care. The American Heart Association is fighting to decrease these disparities with our 2024 Health Impact Goal, a dedicated Office of Health Equity and consumer facing initiatives like EmPOWERED to Serve. These initiatives include programs focused on capital access for scholars and business innovators, working with strategic alliances and corporate supporters and targeted campaigns.

We are excited to work alongside YoSy Media as a sponsor of Check In & Check Up for Your Health, where Sybil Wilkes addresses the health of Black America using humor, facts, and influencers to make a call to action for the Black community to prioritize their health.
