TO EDUCATE, TO CELEBRATE, TO GET PHYSICAL, TO SERVE, AND TO INSPIRE THROUGH FUN AND FITNESS
Over the past 10 years, the AHA NYC Young Professionals, reached amazing heights and developed into one of the most prestigious young professional groups in Manhattan. Thank YOU for bringing our group to the next level of excellence.
The numbers speak for themselves: we lose an American to heart diseases and stroke every 39 seconds. For young adults under the age of 40, our rates are rising. We'd going to change that.
We are young adults who want to make a difference by increasing awareness and education of cardiovascular diseases and stroke while having fun. We have been inspired to get involved, be it because our lives have been directly or indirectly affected by heart diseases and stroke, or because we just want to be part of this active community.
We host regular mission-focused events aimed at getting people learning, thinking, and talking about prevention strategies for a heart healthy lifestyle. We volunteer in the community, meet up for social and fitness events, learn more about heart diseases and stroke, share our stories, advocate for heart policy, support fundraising for cutting edge research, and have fun along the way.
We are vibrant and bold, changing the face of heart disease today, tomorrow - one day at a time.
We are the American Heart Association Young Professionals of NYC. We are the YPs.
2019 Red Ball Honorees:
"My Why is: Being a member of the AHA YP community is a chance celebrate the strength of all those who have been affected by heart disease and stroke while empowering our peers with knowledge on how to lead a brain and heart healthy life."
"My Why is: I want to maintain the best version of myself through a health-minded lifestyle so I can continue to live and enjoy my life to its fullest capacity."
"My original why, is my father, David Lapidus, who had a suffered a sudden fatal heart attack due to undetected heart disease and I joined American Heart Association Young Professional’s organization in his honor. Through my involvement with the AHA, I have met so many incredible individuals who are so passionate that they have made my why not only be about my personal experience with heart disease, but the impact heart health has on everyone."
Dr. Gregory Janis
"I fight heart disease because it does not care about your gender, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or political views. It is the true enemy of the people”.
To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Our mission drives everything we do.
