Mission Statement
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
 
The AHA is composed of 5 regions, with 150 local offices and almost 3,000 employees nationwide. The Midwest Region comprises 13 states, including Kansas and Missouri. The community-based work in Kansas and Missouri is led by staff located throughout each state, including offices in Overland Park and St. Louis, with local volunteers in the communities throughout both states.
Background Statement A pioneering group of physicians and social workers formed the first Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease in 1915. They were concerned about the lack of heart disease information. At that time, heart disease patients were considered doomed, limited to complete bed rest, so these physicians conducted studies to find out whether heart disease patients could safely return to work. Interest spread and soon many were recognizing the need for a national organization to share research findings and to promote further study. As a result, six cardiologists founded the American Heart Association (AHA) in 1924. To broaden its scope, the AHA reorganized in 1948 and brought in non-medical volunteers. Since 1949, the AHA has grown rapidly in size, financial resources, involvement and influence. The volunteer-led affiliates and their divisions form a national network of local AHA organizations. The network continues to gain strength as it expands at the grassroots level.
Impact Statement
 The American Heart Association is a catalyst to achieving maximum impact in equitable health and wellbeing. In order to realize our mission “To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives” and to maximize progress for our communities the American Heart Association is committed to: 
  • Transforming Communities: Your gifts are used to develop initiatives that are implemented in the Kansas City metro to enhance the quality and length of life for every person in our community.
  • Changing Systems: In Kansas City we work to ensure that the systems in which we live, work, play and pray support the greatest health outcomes and quality of life. In addition we support our health systems through our hospital accreditation and guideline programs that ensure  high quality of care for all patients.
  • Driving Policy: Your support advances local policies focusing on elements that impact an individuals long term risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. This includes quality early childhood education, transportation, tobacco and vaping, food access and built environment.
  • Revolutionizing Healthcare: Your support is radically changing the future of cardiovascular care and health. Together we are ensuring that every person has access to quality healthcare. 
  • Leading Breakthroughs is Science and Technology: We are driving the most innovative research and technological solutions that are saving and improving lives everyday. Top researchers are working to conqueror BIG issues surrounding cardiovascular disease, stroke & brain health. 

A “culture of health” recognizes the important role that the environments in which we live influence our health. By addressing the toxic health environments around us, we hope to make the healthy choice the default choice where we live, work, study, play, and pray. 
 
The American Heart Association funds more research than any U.S. organization except the federal government. In all, we spend nearly 80 cents of every dollar on community impact, education & research. 
Needs Statement

There are neighborhoods within Kansas City less than 3 miles apart where there is a 14-20 year life expectancy difference and that is not right. Other statistics that drive our work include: 

  • 1 in 3 women will die from heart disease
  • Every 33 seconds someone has a heart attach
  • 3 out of 5 Americans will develop brain disease including Alzheimer's and Dementia 
  • 1 in 5 Americans will suffer from a stroke

 Last year the American Heart Association received 1,828 more applications worth $351.7 million, that were not funded nationally, including $76.6 million in the Midwest. This means more projects were shelved, deferring the knowledge that would result form their completion.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

The Kansas City American Heart Association is fortunate to have a strong group of volunteers and a very engaged community. We've seen success in the form of legislation and policy change that includes on tobacco (Clean Indoor air laws, Tobacco 21,and tobacco taxes), CPR as a graduation requirement for high school seniors, Medicaid expansion, healthy food access, in addition to many more. 

We take pride in relationships that have been with community partners focusing on equitable health. While we have been successful with local impact the need still remains as less than 1% of our population is in ideal health.

Description

Power To End Stroke is an exciting national campaign that raises awareness about stroke while embracing and celebrating the culture, creativity and energy of African Americans. The campaign mobilizes opinion leaders to become Ambassadors and inspire African Americans to reduce stroke in the community. Opinion leaders, media and healthcare professionals are mobilized and strategic alliances are formed with corporations and foundations. Power to End Stroke is for ages 30-64.

In Kansas City, Power To End Stroke reaches over 25,000 persons annually. We collaborate with many local partners, such as health fairs at churches, hospitals and public health departments; meetings and conferences on health; neighborhood events such as block parties; sporting events; public festivals; and social groups with large numbers of members who are African American. One of the largest annual events is the Gospel Tour, delivering an anti-stroke message in an exciting, music-filled celebration.

Program Budget $100,000.00
Category Health Care, General/Other Preventive Health
Population Served Adults
Short-Term Success Genetic predispositions to cardiovascular disease and stroke are not controllable, but many other risk factors are. We educate clients about the “Three Rs” of stroke: Reduce risk factors; Recognize warning signs of stroke; and Respond immediately. New knowledge is the beginning of our short-term success, but equally important is that we ask clients to sign a pledge to improve their lifestyles based on their new knowledge.
Long-Term Success We are trying to lessen, and ultimately eliminate, the health disparities between African Americans and other Americans. Our goal is to help African Americans live longer, healthier lives.
Program Success Monitored By We educate African Americans about controllable risk factors. After education, we ask participants to sign pledge cards. Some also step up to become an Ambassador, spreading their new knowledge to others. Each year, we appear at about 65-70 Kansas City events attended by approximately 25,000 people; we receive 3,000 pledges and recruit 120-125 Ambassadors. Tracking pledge cards and Ambassadors measures the success of our message.
Examples of Program Success
There is a story behind each of the 3,000 pledges we receive each year. One story is that of Willie Arthur Smith of the Kansas City Cobras.   Mr. Smith suffered a stroke while traveling several years ago. After attending the Celebration last year, he came forward as an ambassador for Power to End Stroke.   His story is familiar - he had known he had high blood pressure for several years – but hadn’t always taken his medication faithfully.  On his way back to Kansas City - he woke up with numbness and an inability to walk – but didn’t recognized these as stroke symptoms.  He assumed he was overtired.  This denial resulted in delay in stroke treatment.  He continued on toward Kansas City – nearly 6 hours after beginning to recognize symptoms.  While his rehabilitation has been successful – he has been unable to continue in his leadership role with the Cobras.  He continues to attend rehearsals and he is still improving physically.  Mr. Smith is spreading the message of Recognizing Stroke Signs and Symptoms and calling 911.  He was also an attendee at the Power to End Stroke Most Powerful Voices Gospel Celebration.
Description

The CPR Anytime line of self-directed learning products was developed to increase CPR knowledge and awareness among the general public – those who do not traditionally attend CPR courses. Currently, only 6.4% percent of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims survive because the vast majority of those witnessing the arrest do not know how to perform CPR.

CPR Anytime can help increase survival rates in communities. People who receive the CPR Anytime kits are able to share lifesaving skills with their loved ones by using the kit to train their entire family.  Studies have shown that, for every CPR Anytime kit used for training, an average of 2.5 people learn how to perform CPR.

The American Heart Association's CPR Anytime personal learning programs include Family & Friends CPR Anytime and Infant CPR Anytime, and Heartsaver AED Anytime, a credentialed program that can be used in worksites to teach CPR skills and use of an Automatic External Defibrillator. 
Program Budget $10,000.00
Category Health Care, General/Other Public Health
Population Served General/Unspecified
Short-Term Success Our initial national goal was to train 20 million people a year by 2010. Unfortunately, we did not make that goal and have now set a more realistic goal to reach and train 20 million by 2020.  We want to insure that when a sudden cardiac arrest take place, bystanders are ready to begin CPR right away because we have given them CPR skills and the confidence to use those skills to save a life.
Long-Term Success

The ultimate goal of CPR Anytime as part of the chain-of-survival is to increase the survival rate of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.

Program Success Monitored By We use a community program assessment tool (COMPASS) to provide valid estimates of the number of people trained through the use of CPR Anytime and Infant CPR Anytime kits, including family and friends with whom the original kit recipients might have shared their kits. Primary kit use is tracked through reports from facilitators of group training sessions and information from response cards, voluntarily submitted by training session participants. Secondary users of kits (friends and family at home) are also asked to submit user registration response cards to track multiple uses of kits. User registration cards are distributed with kits to the initial users, who are instructed to ask subsequent users of the kits to complete and mail the cards. The AHA supplies the user registration cards. All facilitated training session report forms and response cards are returned to the AHA, where data are entered into the COMPASS database.
Examples of Program Success Since CPR Anytime is such a new project, success stories and statistics are still being developed and collected from around the country. To train 20 million people a year by 2010, we needed to train approximately 130,000 in the Kansas City metro. In 2008, in Greater Kansas City, we trained 60,258 people in various forms of CPR (some took CPR Anytime and others took related classes). Thus, we would like to more than double the persons trained, from 60,258 to 130,000. Everyone in Kansas City will benefit because more victims suffering sudden cardiac arrest will be saved by witnesses who have been trained in CPR.
Description

Mission: Lifeline is a visionary program to improve care for all heart attack patients. Steps will include not only better coordination among emergency responders but also more efficient protocols as patients arrive at hospitals. More heart attack patients will survive and thrive.

Mission: Lifeline is the American Heart Association's national initiative to advance the systems of care for patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).  It will meet the needs of patients throughout the continuum of care. Mission: Lifeline uses a community-based, multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach through many collaborating organizations, including emergency services, health care providers, hospitals, policy makers and third party payers.
Program Budget $150,000.00
Category Health Care, General/Other Patient Care/Health Care Delivery
Population Served Adults
Short-Term Success Mission: Lifeline will change the system of care. The American Heart Association has already convened, in Kansas City and across the nation, task forces of stakeholders who are mapping strategic plans. Short-term accomplishments will include: (1) Survey emergency systems and identify necessary upgrades in equipment and education; (2) Identify and develop consensus on necessary system changes; (3) Evaluate existing pilot models; and (4) Develop national certification criteria. 
Long-Term Success The overarching goal of the initiative is to improve outcomes through the reduction of mortality and morbidity for STEMI patients and to improve the overall quality of care.
Program Success Monitored By We have 10 specific outcome measures which can be summarized in three categories: (1) Regional collaborations among health care and emergency systems: five specific outcomes including mortality measures, patient satisfaction scores, and changes in various hospital costs. (2) Emergency systems: one specific outcome about accurate diagnosis of heart attacks. (3) Hospitals: four specific outcomes including rates for complications, successful procedures, and mortality.
Examples of Program Success
Since 2008, we’ve collaborated with many EMS agencies, hospital organizations and other stakeholders:
 
  1. Completed a survey on status of EMS capabilities
  2. Worked with MO volunteers and the MO Department of Health & Human Services to help shape the almost completed “Time Critical Diagnosis” System for STEMI, Stroke and Trauma patients
  3. Increased the number of hospitals in the KC metro to a total of 12 participating in national QI database, ACTION Registry Get With The Guidelines
  4. Advocated for KC metro area hospitals to not allow ED diversion of STEMI, Stroke and Trauma patients – this is now complete.
  5. Helped launch a regional Mission: Lifeline task force for NE Kansas (in partnership with the larger statewide task force) that covers the KC metro/Kansas side hospitals. The group’s goal is to work together as a region to close the gaps on STEMI patient care
  6. Launched Mission: Lifeline Accreditation in fall 2011 – hospitals who have achieved award status in the data collection tool, ACTION Registry Get With The Guidelines, are eligible to apply for this accreditation. We partnered with the Society of Chest Pain Centers on this project.
  7. Launched Mission: Lifeline Cardiac Arrest April 2012 – we’ll begin discussing with partners avenues to ensure the cardiac arrest survivor’s treatment meets national guidelines and implementation strategies are in place.
Description Since 1949 the American Heart Association has spent more than $3.3 billion on research to increase knowledge about cardiovascular disease and stroke. Today, the AHA is the largest national supporter of beginning investigators, from undergraduates through post-doctoral investigators.   Innovative funding supplied by the AHA stimulates research in promising areas of cardiovascular science.

Over the past year, the AHA has given over $4.4 million to support 15 research projects in the Kansas City area.  Including The University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, University of Kansas in Lawrence, University of Missouri and St. Lukes Hospital in Kansas City, MO.

Short-Term Success

Goal 1: Ensure continuation of highly meritorious research and discovery including support of early career investigators.

Goal 2: Increase the capacity of the research community to generate the highest quality research.

Goal 3: Promote a research infrastructure that expedites the translation of basic, clinical, behavioral and population research into practice.
Long-Term Success To achieve knowledge discovery by supporting highly meritorious research projects that promote innovation with significant potential impact, including investment in basic and translational approaches.
Program Success Monitored By The AHA is committed to maintaining research programs of the very highest quality. Standards have been developed for research programs to ensure they remain at a uniformly high level. The most important of these written guides is the Standards for Research Programs. It contains policies, standards and guidelines to help ensure that the association’s research programs are conducted properly.
Examples of Program Success A joint project of the Mid America Heart Institute (affiliated with Saint Luke’s Health System and the University of Missouri-Kansas City) and the University of Kansas Medical School was funded by the American Heart Association. The project will test a new consent form that is individually tailored to disclose to each prospective angioplasty patient his or her individual risk and expected outcomes, as established by prior research.  The consent form will encourage a dialogue between the patient and doctor because it incorporates easy-to-understand risk/benefit graphs based on the patient’s health history, health status, certain genetic markers, and other factors.  It will empower patients to become fuller partners in their own health care. It is too soon to know the outcomes of this exciting project, but it could trigger a revolution in patients’ participation in decision-making for angioplasties.
Description
When healthcare providers apply the most up-to-date evidence-based treatment guidelines, outpatient outcomes improve and lives can be saved! That’s the simple truth behind our drive for continuous quality improvement.
 
The American Heart Association’s comprehensive suite of ambulatory care quality improvement initiatives help clinics advance further and faster in the quest for better outpatient care. Our initiatives work together to reduce cardiovascular deaths, heart attacks, and strokes among the 100 million+ Americans living with hypertension, cholesterol , and/or Type 2 Diabetes.
 
We share all of our 3 quality improvement initiatives to clinics, including federally qualified health clinics and health systems at no cost. We provide ongoing resources and training, and highlight clinic progress and successes through national and local recognition opportunities.

Short-Term Success Our short term successes include registering all health systems and clinics in each program. For clinics/systems who are already registered our goals are to see improvements in their patient outcomes resulting in national program recognition. 
Long-Term Success Our long term success goals are that all ambulatory care clinics in the metro have control rates for Hypertension, Cholesterol, and Type 2 Diabetes at 70% or higher. 
Program Success Monitored By Success is monitored by staff at the local, regional and national level. 
Examples of Program Success We have been successful in engaging with the majority of the FQHCs in the metro. Many have seen improvement in their control rates and have been able to receive recognition. In the last year we have also been pleased with our success in registering multiple health systems in the metro as well. 
CEO Comments

As the American Heart Association grows and evolves, I’m energized by the strong, vibrant future we’re building with our more than 40 million volunteers and supporters. Lighting our path is a bold, new mission statement — the single phrase that informs everything we do: To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. 

 

That’s our purpose — the reason we exist — and our guiding values ensure we commit to that mission daily. While our work remains anchored to heart disease and stroke, we’ve sharpened our focus to meet the comprehensive health needs of people everywhere.

 

Our core philanthropic enterprise continues to fund programs that power our mission and support the pillars of our work: leading breakthroughs in science and technology, changing systems and policies, and transforming health care and communities.

 

In the Mission Aligned Business portion of our work, the AHA and Laerdal Medical formally announced RQI Partners, LLC, a joint venture partnership that blends our science leadership with Laerdal’s technology expertise to eliminate deaths from preventable cardiac arrest.

 

I’m particularly excited about our growing organizational focus on Emerging Strategies & Ventures as we form powerful partnerships at the intersection of science and technology. Together we’ll advance data mining, precision medicine, health technology, drug discovery, venture capital investing, and brain health and healthy aging.

 

With all three business areas working in synergy and thriving through the AHA’s celebrated brand, trusted science and vast grassroots, we’re mapping the road to health equity. This is evidenced by the lives saved, laws changed, discoveries made and communities transformed under our watch. 

As we embrace the future with you, I’m proud to say that we are Bigger. Better. Bolder. Thank you for your dedication to our mission.

 

All my best,

Collaborations

Our successes include partnering with organizations, including other health associations and advocacy groups, state/national medical associations, health departments, school and hospital/healthcare systems, businesses, and civic organizations. Our years-long dedication to partnering in the fight against tobacco use has contributed to the passage of dozens of tobacco tax increases, hundreds of smoke-free laws, and appropriations of hundreds of millions of state and federal government dollars for tobacco control. In fact, in 2009, we helped lead the way in the passage of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. AHA has been actively using the strategies of equitable engagement, mobilization for action, and multi-sector collaboration for many years to reduce tobacco use and improve health outcomes in Kansas City through Clean Indoor Air (went into effect in Kansas in 2010) and Tobacco 21 policies (passed in Wyandotte County in 2015).
