Do you want to improve the health of minorities? We are currently looking for individuals to be appointed to our Board of Directors. As a board member, your time will be spent governing, organizational development, and is a key company advisor.
At Black Heart Association, we’re accelerating world-class heart health entrepreneurs and mobilizing key change agents to catalyze the scalable innovations and legislative changes needed to transform the future of heart health literacy and access.
All of us at BHA have experienced first-hand, or through that of loved ones and friends, the pain caused by how broken our approaches towards heart health really are. This has driven us to unite some of the best minds and doers on the planet to fix it on a national (then global) scale and accelerated timeline.
You, you, you!
We are looking for a bold, entrepreneurial, and boundary-pushing Leader who is enthralled by the challenge and excited by the opportunity to drive sweeping transformations in heart health and help improve the quality of life for black people on a national scale and accelerated timeline.
If the above sounds like you and you’re interested in joining our fight, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you.
We’re expanding our team… This is where you come in.

In addition to the standard duties and characteristics, all Board Members should:
Be excited to join a team devising, testing, and iterating non-traditional/’out of the building’ approaches to achieve ambitious social impact-focused goals.

Be driven to transform future heart health.
Be honest, transparent, and have extremely high integrity.
