AFib explained in exclusive video series
We have worked with our friends at AntiCoagulation Europe (ACE) and world renowned AF expert, Professor John Camm, to produce these informative videos explaining what AFib is, the risks associated with it and how stroke risk could be reduced through effective treatment.
Half of Americans unaware of AFib
In a survey of over 1,400 Americans, one in two adults were unaware of the most common heart rhythm condition that increases stroke risk by 500%. Of those people who have Afib, less than half know about this stroke risk.
Join us in an international effort to prevent serious or devastating stroke by making AFib a healthcare priority; Sign Against Stroke.
The 1 Mission 1 Million (1M1M) initiative is going from strength to strength to support advancements in AFib-related stroke prevention. Sign the petition or join the discussion on Twitter #AFmission.
The aim is to get one million signatures from across the globe to raise awareness of AFib as a serious condition to health organizations all over the world.
Forum change - HealthUnlocked replaces AF Yahoo forum
Through recent and on-going issues with access to our Yahoo Forum, AF Association has made the difficult decision to replace Yahoo with a new forum – HealthUnlocked. AF Association HealthUnlocked is free to join and messages are published immediately on posting.
As a non-profit organization, we greatly rely on your donations to help us continue our work of raising awareness and providing information, support and access to established, new or innovative treatments for AFib. All donations are tax deductible, and easy to secure. Thank you so much for your support. For more information, please contact, firstname.lastname@example.org
