The American Heart Association will be at the 2019 La Habra Tamale Festival
The American Heart Association (AHA) Orange County Division is excited to be participating in the La Habra Tamale Festival. The AHA is a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. The AHA is dedicated to ensuring equitable health in all communities. Through collaboration with numerous organizations, and powered by millions of volunteers, we fund innovative research, advocate for the public’s health and share lifesaving resources.
About the American Heart Association
The American Heart Association has determined three priority areas where the Association’s impact would make most sense – Obesity, Access to Healthcare and Mental/Brain Health. The local Orange County Division is proud to support this year’s La Habra Tamale Festival because it can impact all three areas. We can impact Obesity through providing health education, access to healthcare through providing health screenings and the festival encourages community walking and camaraderie which helps with reducing stress which is essential for good mental/brain health.
