Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, will give featured remarks.

The AHA’s young professionals group, PULSE, will host “Heart After Dark,” the annual after party following the Greater Washington Region Heart Ball. The event will include a cocktail reception followed by dancing, dessert and drinks with the attendees of the Heart Ball.
The AHA’s live and silent auctions in 2013 raised $188,000 in revenue for critical research, education and heart health support advocacy, of which the association spent 86 percent on mission-critical projects. Research focus areas included obesity prevention, tobacco control and the treatment of heart disease and stroke.
