Mission Statement

The Council on Epidemiology and Prevention (EPI) focuses on population-based approaches to preventing cardiovascular diseases. The mission of the American Heart Association (AHA) Council on Epidemiology and Prevention is to lead the discovery and translation of science related to the distribution and determinants of cardiovascular disease, with an emphasis on population approaches to prevent cardiovascular disease and improve cardiovascular health.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, yet only one in five American women believes heart disease is her greatest health threat. With the right information, education and care, heart disease in women can be treated, prevented, and even ended. Visit for more information.
