Heart Disease

Poor diet and physical inactivity are among the leading causes of preventable death in California and play a major role in a host of chronic diseases and health-threatening conditions, including heart disease. Through research-based modalities, PHI identifies who is at most risk for heart disease (and other chronic diseases), in order to inform better prevention strategies. PHI also advocates for better policies at the local and international levels to increase access to healthy foods, curb tobaccos use, and promote physical activity—helping to reduce and prevent heart disease. We are committed to strengthening local leaders and organizations in building effective change agents in the movement to build healthier communities, both within the United States and around the world.
