The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide critical tools and information to save and improve lives.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
The size and scope of our organization, along with our more than 40 million volunteers and supporters, allows us to make a real impact on our shared focus of cardiovascular and overall health.
I can truly say interning at the American Heart Association has been one of the best experiences. I am surrounded by people who believe in me and want me to succeed. I came into the internship not knowing what to expect, but now I feel more prepared to take on the workforce. My team makes my input feel valued and gives me a voice to share my thoughts. One of my favorite things about working here is the meaningful work that we do. I know that we are all working towards a bigger goal of saving lives. I am so grateful I have this opportunity, and I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me.
