We’re in This Together
As you may have heard, heart and stroke patients make up almost half of all people hospitalized with COVID-19, and in response, we have focused many of our efforts to protecting patients. Those who are fighting heart disease and stroke are more susceptible to coronavirus and more likely to develop severe symptoms. Through your support, we've saved millions of lives from heart disease and stroke. Now, we have a new opponent and your help along the way has made us stronger and more prepared to face the challenges Together, we're made for this moment.
Minnesota Health Disparities
Minnesota often ranks in the top 5 nationally for places to live, overall health, volunteerism and philanthropy. Sadly, we also rank in the bottom 5 for worst health disparities as not everyone has equal access to housing options, healthy food, healthcare, and safe places to exercise.
In the Twin Cities, a few miles between neighborhoods could equate to a 27-year difference in life expectancy. We don’t think that it’s fair that a person’s zip code could have more impact on their health than their genetic code. Those in outstate Minnesota are also challenged with long distances to grocery stores and clinics. We are working within our communities to eliminate these social barriers and ensure health equity for all in Minnesota.
