To combat the many facets of cardiovascular disease in students by promoting a heart-healthy lifestyle. Our student perspective, along with the knowledge we gain from the research conducted at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, allows us to educate the student body on heart health. We provide the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation with a network of student heart-health activists, which the Foundation utilizes for aid in its many fundraising activities, campaigns, events and more. We also design creative and innovative ways to fundraise for the Heart Institute Foundation ourselves, as well as promote its mandate through awareness campaigns. Most importantly, we engage university students, not only in their own heart-health, but in the heart-health of those around them.
