A network comprises three to five institutions, or centers, working on projects focused on one strategic area that can assist the AHA in reaching its 2020 goals and overall mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Later this year, AHA will add a Health Innovation and Technology (wearables, apps, equipment, etc.) network. Please monitor the website www.professional.heart.org/SFRN for deadline announcements.
