Gossett Elementary is proud to help the American Heart Association as they are supporting our community in many ways during this pandemic. In a normal year, heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, but now people who have had a stroke or live with heart disease make up more than 40% of those hospitalized for COVID-19. The AHA has already funded $2.5 Million in fast-response grants to study COVID-19’s effects on heart disease patients, launched a COVID-19 Data Registry within the Get with the Guidelines registry that is used by hundreds of hospitals nation-wide. This has made it possible to learn from COVID patients quickly and improve treatments more rapidly. The more that is discovered, the more research is needed.
We understand that every family may not be able to donate, but all students can enjoy the weekly missions and have the opportunity to share about heart disease. If you are able to help raise funds, the American Heart Association will put those to work in our community.
