- Prevention- Through policy change to reduce sugar intake in youth and to promote physical activity while reducing sedentary behaviour.
- Saving Lives- By teaching CPR and and advocating and supplying funding for more AED’s in public areas

The Heart and Stroke Foundation also recognizes that Women’s and Indigenous heart health are under researched and we are part of the paradigm change to promote research in theses populations.
