Ultimate Medical Academy is a nonprofit allied healthcare school with care at the center of everything we do, from educating our students to equipping our graduates to fill the healthcare gap in the communities they serve. We have partnered with the American Heart Association to support the charge toward heart-healthy communities through education.
Heart disease was statistically the No. 1 cause of death in the U.S. in 20201, affecting nearly half of the adult population.
As part of the partnership, we've developed this page to provide educational resources that can support a heart healthy lifestyle.
Through good healthcare for ourselves and others, we believe we can strive towards living longer, healthier, happier lives. Together, let's start with your heart!
