Description: Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans. We are working with citizens and leaders, collaborating with neighbors and supporters. We are unraveling complex health issues in our community with a powerful combination of groundbreaking research and community leadership. These critical changes improve Silicon Valley for all – moving us closer to a community, and ultimately, a world free of heart disease and stroke.
Mission: We’re making your community healthier by advocating for key issues such as:

Smoke-free public places
More walkable and bikeable streets, roads and parks
Better nutrition and high-quality physical education in our schools
Adequate, affordable and available health care for all
