American Heart Association Internship Profile
The American Heart Association traces its roots back to New York City in 1915 when a group of concerned physicians formed the Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease to educate citizens about the disease, which was quickly becoming a leading cause of death. Similar groups began to crop up in Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago in the 1920s.

Today, the American Heart Association is a leading health advocate, taking on such titans as the tobacco industry and dispersing its research publicly.
