Help MedHQ Be A Relentless Force For A World of Longer, Healthier Lives.

We partner with the American Heart Association to raise funds and take the opportunity upon ourselves to improve our own heart health. We find it important to support causes that reflect our values and are impactful to our team and AHA is something we support loudly.

2024 Health Equity Impact Goal

Every person deserves the opportunity for a full, healthy life. As champions for health equity, by 2024, the American Heart Association will advance cardiovascular health for all, including identifying and removing barriers to health care access and quality.

For many people of color and others whose health suffers because of social factors beyond their control. In fact, people in some under-resourced ZIP codes have shorter life expectancies than their neighbors just a few miles away. And people in often-remote rural areas face significantly higher death rates from heart disease and stroke.

We are striving toward health equity for a simple reason: Lives are at stake. People suffer when they lack access to quality care, nutritious food and other basic health needs. Without opportunities to enjoy full, healthy lives, people often get sicker and die younger.

Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal


MedHQ hosted the Heart of the Business Conference in 2019 and Virtual Experience in 2020. 

“I am proud of the success of the inaugural Heart of the Business Conference, and how the MedHQ team came together to support the American Heart Association,” said Tom Jacobs MedHQ CEO.

In alignment with hosting the conference, MedHQ also participated in all three American Heart Association Metro Chicago Heart Walks for the second year in a row, surpassing the amount raised from last year.

“This has been an amazing experience. With our new initiatives this year from the conference and fundraising efforts we raised well in excess of $45,000,” says MedHQ COO, Rita Hernandez-Figi. “A huge thank you to our sponsors, conference attendees and anyone who donated to our team.”


Each month leading up to the previous Metro Chicago Heart Walk, we highlighted a different tip centered around a saying we have at MedHQ: “We are at the heart of healthcare businesses.”
