Our Hearts Are Open: Our Commitment to the Cardiovascular Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, and Diabetes Communities During COVID-19

For the millions of Americans living with cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, or diabetes, we recognize that managing your health can be hard under any circumstances. COVID-19 has presented additional challenges, making it both more critical and more complex to stay healthy.

There’s still so much we don’t know about reopening the world safely. While guidance remains to stay home as much as possible, we recognize that may not be an option for some. For those living with cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes, taking care of yourself, and others, may take you out into the world.

Routines and expectations are changing daily, but the need to manage your health remains constant. We stand with you, to support you, and while doors may still be closed, our hearts are open to all of you. We created this program to support your community during this time and provide resources from our advocacy partners to help you manage your overall health.
