Imagine what would happen if our society were able to modify its daily routines and acquire healthy habits.
After a lifetime devoted to medicine and research, Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD is convinced that a change in the population’s lifestyle is the only way to avoid the spread of cardiovascular diseases, which are a real epidemic and the main cause of death in the world.
Faced with this evidence and based on the experience gained over his career, Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD promoted the creation of SHE, a non-profit foundation that, while focused on basic and clinical research (Science), is aimed at promoting healthy habits (Health) through communication and Education of the population.
With this goal, the SHE Foundation devotes its efforts to creating a frame of reference for what an education in health means and involves, stressing the acquirement of healthy habits from childhood in order to promote a world in which children, young people and adults have the ability to act positively towards their health.
“Because the impact of cardiovascular diseases will be reduced if society reduces risks.” Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD
We aspire to a world in which children, young people and adults have the ability to act positively towards their health.
We want to influence the risk factors that affect children, young people and adults with the aim of reducing the impact of cardiovascular diseases. We want to create a frame of reference for what an education in total health means and involves at all ages and stages of life. We wish to mobilise society, achieving the involvement and collaboration of all those institutions and groups that have an effect on children, young people and adults regarding their decisions on total health.
We appreciate the collaboration:
