The American Heart Association is launching a new program aimed at improving the health of our diverse community.

The Have Faith in Heart Program will bring information on heart disease, stroke, risk factors and prevention to Mohawk Valley churches and community groups.

The AHA is working closely with several organizations including the local NAACP Chapter, Mohawk Valley Latino Association and Mohawk Valley Community Action to reach as many people as possible.

The program is sponsored by the local law firm Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi and Pearlman.
