The Heartbeat Of Hope

Making a Difference: The Arizona Heart Foundation provides hope in the fight against heart disease.

For 50 years, AHF has been at the forefront of lifesaving research and educational programs that target the leading cause of death in the United States. Established in 1970 by internationally renowned cardiovascular surgeon Edward B. Diethrich, AHF has long been actively involved in the development of state-of-the-art technologies and therapies. The organization is widely recognized as a leading authority in the identification and prevention of cardiovascular disease – and for its groundbreaking education and outreach initiatives.

As AHF celebrates its golden anniversary, the organization is entering a new era in the fight against cardiovascular disease. Through the leadership of President & CEO Paula Banahan, AHF has sharpened its focus on professional education and public awareness. Its acclaimed programs include career education for nurse specialists and imaging technicians. By launching a dynamic new initiative, AHF will bring crucial ultrasound screenings to under-served and at-risk communities.

With the support of its valued donors, AHF continues to pursue its vision of ending preventable deaths due to heart disease.
