American Heart Association-Fundraiser for STEM Resources in Philly Schools

09/11/2018 1:08 PM | Rebecca Buchanan (Administrator)


By 2018, eight million science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs will be available in the United States, but most American students will be unprepared to fill these careers. Moreover, only 3 out of 100 female undergraduate students continue to work in STEM fields after graduating.

The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association is science-based organization and is the largest cardiovascular disease and stroke research funder after the federal government. We are conveners between academic institutions, industry, and healthcare systems, and we are committed to moving these fields forward.


We are building a brighter future, stopping heart disease before it starts, and paving the way to healthier

communities. Innovation and big thinking takes young, emerging students committed to making change happen. Join us for an inspiring, day-long event to empower an extraordinary group of local young women to explore STEM outside the classroom. They will gain first-hand experience, connect with inspiring leaders, and will walk away knowing they can make an impact through a career in STEM.
