Wisconsin Heart Health Alliance

Who We Are and What We Do

The Wisconsin Heart Health Alliance (WHHA) is a coalition of professional and health care organizations, community agencies, and public health representatives who share a commitment to improve heart health in Wisconsin. We collaborate to advance prevention, screening, management, and treatment of heart disease, stroke, and co-morbid chronic conditions. The group meets virtually twice a year on various topics.

WHHA exists to promote best practices, collaborative activities, organizational and professional relationships, and ideas that help to improve the heart health of all Wisconsin residents. The Alliance also commits to health equity as the highest guiding principle in all of its work as it recognizes that best practices have not truly been achieved until all disparities of care in underserved communities have been eliminated.

2022 Heart Health Equity Learning Series

Multiple hands creating a heart shape

Heart disease has been–and still remains–the leading cause of death throughout Wisconsin, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to 2020, striking heart disease disparities existed that were exacerbated by the impact of COVID-19. Now, more than ever, Wisconsin organizations need to unite and commit to a focus on heart disease prevention, management, and health equity.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and Wisconsin Community Health Empowerment Fund, Inc., collaborating members of the Wisconsin Heart Health Alliance, invite you to re-center your heart health efforts at our Heart Health Equity Learning Series, where you will hear about promising practices and stories of success from heart health experts. Come join us in reaffirming Wisconsin's commitment to heart health equity for all!
