Organizational Mandate and Community Impact
Most people live the majority of their lives in the community. We are a community organization, supporting the health of Islanders in their homes and their communities, committed to assisting in helping them live as healthfully as they can.
We are proud of our mission-related accomplishments. Foundation-funded research and health promotion programs continue to help Islanders live longer, fuller lives. We have reduced deaths from heart attack by 75 per cent in the last 60 years. Heart disease is no longer the number 1 killer of women. Our work makes a difference. But our work is clearly not done; nine in 10 Islanders have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
