Richmond Board of Directors 

The American Heart Association's Richmond Board of Directors is grateful for the volunteers and supporters who are a relentless force for longer, healthier lives for everyone in the Richmond area.  Keeping hearts beating is what keeps our hearts pumping here at AHA. We hope you will join us in our mission!

Sheryl Garland, MHA - Richmond Board President and Chief of Health Impact at VCU Health System

“There’s no quick fix or one way to solve the complex health issues facing our community. That’s why we are focused on these six key areas where we can make the greatest impact: blood pressure, physical activity, healthy eating, tobacco use, cardiac care and access and social determinants of health. With your support, we can be a force for longer, healthier lives in Richmond."
MAA Richmond Board Chair Mitch Haddon

Mitch Haddon, Richmond Board Chair and President of ColonialWebb

"Where we work, play, live, learn and pray should help our health, not harm it.  Our Hard Hats With Heart initiative is bringing science-based workplace wellness resources to the construction industry, which has the highest use of tobacco, a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and stroke."
