Welcome, Western States Affiliate Members

Welcome to the American Heart Association Western States Affiliate Page!

The Western States Affiliate represents a diverse set of care providers and health systems. States that are included in our Affiliate region include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. On behalf of the American Heart Association, I'd like to thank you for the work you do to treat STEMI patients in your community. As part of my role as Affiliate Vice President, it's my job to make sure that STEMI and Cardiac Resuscitation professionals like you are able to access the information they need to do their jobs. If you are in need of specific resources or would like to find out more about the Western States Affiliate, please contact me at reaanne.arcangel@heart.org or reach out to one of the Regional Contacts listed below.
