Million Hearts™ is a national initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over the next five years. Heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the United States. The impact of heart disease on the communities we serve is high. For Asians or Pacific Islanders, heart disease is second only to cancer as a cause of death.
