Miami heart research institute is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to stop heart disease through research, education and prevention. Miami heart research institute's novel approach to collaborative research on the national level serves as a critical impetus to the introduction and development of innovative research efforts. This unique approach has proven highly effective in directing critical resources to open new and vital areas of scientific exploration.


Cardiovascular research: the miami heart research institute is well positioned for a long and productive future in cardiovascular research, education and prevention by combining our unique resources with those of other established centers. Whether in partnership with another research center of excellence nationally or another community service organization locally, we believe that we are stronger as a team than we each are individually. Working collaboratively with other organizations allows each entity to participate fully where their individual strengths lie. Our independence allows us to pursue research, education and prevention programs based solely upon scientific merit and pursuit of our mission. Miami heart research institute's programs and alliances are not influenced by political agendas or projected profits. Unlike affiliated research facilities, this freedom permits us to focus on projects and research partners that demonstrate the most promise for advancement in the field. Partnerships are selected based upon their world-class expertise, credentials and their ability to contribute to the project. These cooperative relationships allow mhri to "fast track" the project bypassing the usual bureaucracy endured by larger institutions. Research projects are selected based upon their scientific validity and their contribution to the advancement of our understanding of the prevention, diagnosis, treatment of heart disease and the disease process. Projects are reviewed by our scientific advisory panel, which is comprised of the physician members of mhri's board. Projects where there has not yet been sufficient interest, knowledge or support are preferred which gives mhri a cutting edge niche as an innovator and leader.

education and prevention: education and prevention projects are pursued that improve public health, reduce health disparities and / or increase access to care in measurable and meaningful ways. At the miami heart research institute, we believe that through basic and clinical research combined with education about the causes, risk factors and lifestyle options, heart disease can be stopped. Research discoveries benefit all humanity and education promotes informed choices thereby improving outcomes and quality of life. Research is imperative for our future health while education and prevention are key to health today.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

Florida Heart is an amazing organization. They are committed to working with the community and are particular interested in finding "hard to reach" patients through outreach and education.

They have "mastered" the art of conducting health fairs in our community ... they work well with all groups and agencies in our community ... they are a reliable and awesome resource!

Everyone loves Florida Heart!

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

They provide community based hypertension and diabetes screening to residents in Miami Dade and Broward Counties and refer high risk patients to partner Federally Qualified Health Centers.

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

I would not change a thing but if I could I would provide them with additional resources so they could reach more people!
