It's the beat underlying everything that keeps you on the move. When it's strong, it tells you instantly you're alive. When it's weak, it's a sign that help is needed. At Heart, Pulse is a group of local young professionals working to build a strong beat of commitment to heart health in the next generation of community leaders. It's your friends and coworkers gathering to educate, inspire and develop the habit of philanthropy dedicated to changing the health of a new generation. Making it so that the next one won't have to fight the same battle.
Pulse is all about prevention. It's about staying strong, being steady, growing powerful in the fight to eliminate deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The people of Pulse know that the best results, the biggest breakthroughs, and the most fun come from working together. Join in the Pulse.
The Pittsburgh Heart Ball is unique. We award a deserving cardiologist each year with the Peter J. Safar Pulse of Pittsburgh Award, which just so happens to have the same name as the American Heart Association's new effort to recruit young professionals to get involved with our cause called "Pulse."
Join us in congratulating P.S. Reddy, M.D. of UPMC as the 2010 Pulse of Pittsburgh award winner. Dr. Reddy will receive his award at the Heart Ball. If you would like to make a donation on behalf of Dr. Reddy and his accomplishments as a brilliant teacher, philathropist, and doctor, feel free to make a donation on this page.
