About the Association
Black Heart Association(BHA) is a nonprofit organization focused on the overall improvement of health outcomes in communities of color.
BHA’s mission is to eliminate heart-health disparities in black and brown communities through advocacy, education and empowerment.
We promote healthy hearts by advocating for people of color, primarily in underserved communities where there is little or no access to health care.
Founded by a three-time heart attack survivor, our organization understands the importance of screenings, and education, as ways to prevent heart disease. BHA takes action through our advocacy to help individuals understand the causes, effects and symptoms of heart disease and taking action to help prevent heart disease in those who are considered more at risk.
