New York City Social Media Ambassadors
If you like social media and are passionate about ending heart disease and stroke, this is the volunteer opportunity for you! At the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, we use social media as an opportunity to share stories, spread messages and raise awareness. By joining social media efforts, we can engage with more people and ultimately save more lives! Remember, you are powerful – sharing content through your personal network can influence friends, family and even strangers to make healthier decisions. Every month we will provide lifesaving content to share on your social media channels. Feel free to copy and paste.

Sample Messages & Graphics
- Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. It’s time to change this fact. It’s time to be demanding when it comes to women’s heart health and ask others to do the same. It’s time to go red! #GoRedNYC
