Review for American Heart Association, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am Roger Potter - I am a Volunteer Social Media Diplomate with the American Heart Association on FaceBook.

In 1952 when I was 5 I underwent Open Heart surgery that was paid for by the American Heart Association.

Now at age 66 I am keeping myself busy and very active - being a social media diplomate with the AHA allows me and the other diplomates to help, encourage, reach out and Pray for those that have either had heart attacks or heart surgery.

Being that I had open heart surgery keeping myself active is paramount - every 3 days I am in the gym progressive strength/weight training in order to keep my body and heart health & strong.,

20.8 % of money raised is spent on research
39.1 is spent on public health education
14 is spent on professional educ/training
05.1 is spent on community service
13 is spent on fundraising
07.9 is spent on salaries.

I am proud to be a member of the AHA that is dedicated to promoting heart health and education on heart health. I am now accomplishing Senior Strength.

This year the AHA won the social media award for promoting having a healthy heart that was done by US diplomates: the link
