The American Heart Association & Al Dia present “Addressing the Issues and Funding the Change”, a roundtable discussion about the AHA’s Bernard J. Tyson Social Impact Fund in Philadelphia.   


Funded by an initial gift of $1 million by The Andréa W. and Kenneth C. Frazier Family Foundation, the Bernard J. Tyson Fund supports community-led, entrepreneurial social and economic solutions intended to improve health equity in Philadelphia. Tyson, a past president of the AHA, cared passionately about health equity and social justice, and the Bernard J. Tyson Impact Fund was created to honor his memory.
