A program developed for and with the communities of Baltimore. We're bringing together families, churches, senior centers and community partners to support heart health.

engAGE with Heart offers community programming in three main areas:


We’re empowering communities with the knowledge they need to take preventative health care into their own hands.

Healthy Food

We’re enabling a pipeline of healthy food and the tools communities need to facilitate healthy food decisions at home.


We’re working with local health providers to screen our community for signs of heart health and provide connections to care.
