HIGHLIGHTED STORIES: APHA partners to raise awareness about health and well-being for boys and men of color

14 May

APHA and the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies have partnered to raise awareness about health and well-being issues for boys and men of color. Racial and ethnic minority males are less likely to use preventative health services, have a regular doctor or source of care and are less likely to have health insurance. As they are also more at risk for morbidity across the lifespan and more likely to die at an earlier age than other groups, the partnership strives to encourage research policy and clinical practice that impacts the health of boys and men of color. 


May is American Stroke Month

13 May

May is American Stroke Month, which is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s annual campaign to increase stroke awareness and to educate Americans that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable.  While stroke is the No. 4 cause of death and leading cause of disability in the U.S., many Americans do not think of stroke as a major health concern.  We have made a lot of progress, but we still have a ways to go to end stroke and need your help!


Partner With The American Heart/The American Stroke Association!

A growing number of individuals and organizations are helping spread American Stroke Month across the nation and throughout the world. From families to healthcare professionals, corporations, national organizations, professional societies, and communities, each partner plays a critical role in helping create healthier communities. Join the campaign and let’s work together to end stroke!
