Your support will help fulfill our mission to provide a platform to improve and expand heart failure care through collaboration, education, innovation, research and advocacy.

Research & Travel Grants
These grants provide financial support for basic, clinical and population-based research related to heart failure and offers the opportunity for researchers to present their findings to the heart failure community. Travel grants give early career professionals (physicians, scientists, nurses and pharmacists) the opportunity to attend the HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting.

HFSA offers a variety of educational and awareness programs for healthcare professionals, patients and the general public. These programs include CME and non-CME programs for professionals, community based education for patients, printed educational resources on heart failure, and Heart Failure Awareness Week in February.
