The Jackson Heart Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in August 2009 with the mission to lead the fight against heart disease in our community through education, prevention, and early detection.
Mississippi is rated among the highest in the nation with incidences of cardiovascular disease. Based off of this statistic, we believe it is vital to the health and well-being of our citizens to educate and encourage healthy lifestyles for our families and to increase awareness among the public about heart disease prevention.
Our vision is a community where individuals live healthier and more productive lives because cardiovascular disease was prevented before it became a problem … a community where heart disease doesn’t affect each and every one of us.
