UF Health earns top honors at Heart Walk

During September’s annual American Heart Association Heart Walk event, UF Health came in on top again, exceeding last year’s totals with 1,089 walkers registered and more than $44,000 raised! AHA is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. Over the past 10 years, UF Health has received research grant awards in excess of $17 million, putting us among the nation’s top 25 institutions for funding received from the AHA. The Heart Walk gives us the opportunity to say thank you and contribute to this generous endeavor. Because of your generosity, our UF Health providers are able to offer the latest research to better prevent and treat patients with heart and vascular conditions. Thank you for all that you do on behalf of our patients and our community!
