Miami Heart Research Institute or Florida Heart Research Institutes has been a great organization to work with. We work with them to raise the needed funds to help further the great work they do in the community. Everyone we have worked with has been very professional and helpful. They are a great organization, working hard to help those in the community take better care of their hearts.

I wouldn't change anything at all.

I began my involvement with Miami Heart Research Institute in 2008 when I met Sallie Byrd who asked me to host a kick off for a new event they had created called 'Limo to Lunch'. Sallie and her team have kept me involved and in the loop of the organization since then. I was impressed by the outreach for awareness of heart health that the organization provides. They also made a point of inviting my employees at the time in to be evaluated.

It had been years since I had had a total physical examination and as a result of getting a jump start from a Miami Heart Research Institute off site evaluation, I finally booked an appointment with my physician. It put my mind at ease. Miami Heart Research Institute helped remind me of the importance of one's health!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hearty Congratulations! They could always use more money! :-)

It's very simple. We work with 100 to 140 NFP organizations each year. MHRI leads the pack in the services they provide, the results they accomplish, their interaction with the community and their ethics.

Exceptionally highly recommended!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Interviews with those they help, tours of facility, ongoing interaction with senior executives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would change nothing with MHRI. I just wish we could get other organizations to emulate them!

While at a local health store, I noticed a crowd of mostly elderly people crowding some booths. I was pleasantly suprised to see the extent to which Florida Heart was going to go out and there and promote awareness. The elderly are an important part of our society and there are not enough organizations helping them out. Kudos Florida Heart!

Walking around Miami, I've personally seen a few events first hand. It's great what you guys are doing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Market more. Regardless of how great a service you guys have, if no one knows then no one benefits.

I was a Teaching Assistant for eight University of Miami students working on a marketing plan for the "Heart of a Chef" event for the Heart Research Institute. Sallie Byrd and Staci Ehrenkrantz of the organization were extraordinarily helpful to the students' professional growth and have an evident passion for their work. Both communicated regularly and effectively with our team and provided us with all the information needed on their organization. I also had the pleasure of being invited with the students to the "Heart of a Chef" event and had a wonderful time experiencing an exciting and educational event organized by the institute.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my attendance at the "Heart of a Chef" event and my collaboration with the institute - both are clear examples of the dedication and passion of this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure everyone knows of this organization and the great things it does for the community!

I have co-chaired two years in a row the Heart of a Chef event to raise awareness on heart healthy eating. We have held the event at the Museum of Science so as to make it a family event and thus educate children as well. Tremendous community support and turnout is a hallmark of the event.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

raising the awareness of public school children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

We need to raise more funds to expand staff and therefore expand the services it offers.

in the course of a free cardiovascular screening, i was discovered to have several serious risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The personnel at the Research Institute could not have been kinder or more helpful in educating me about my risk and in helping me to find appropriate treatment. In essence, they may have saved my life! (and they couldn't have been nicer about it)

see above

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Figure out how to help them grow and expand to offer their fine community resources and fascinating research on an even larger scale.
