SoutheastHEALTH Ambassadors

The SoutheastHEALTH Ambassadors are a volunteer board that focuses on supporting SoutheastHEALTH Foundation. They will specifically be supporting the HeartStrong Fund which is a resource to provide funding for programs to address cardiovascular disorders and prevention, specifically cardiac rehab, scaled to congestive heart failure patients, smoking cessation programs, and the Mending Hearts program.

SoutheastHEALTH’s top-ranked team of cardiologists diagnoses and treats many heart conditions, including many rare and complex disorders. SoutheastHEALTH’s Division of Cardiovascular Diseases is one of the largest and most integrated in the South Central Region of Missouri. SoutheastHEALTH physicians work together to evaluate and treat patients, utilizing the most advanced techniques and technologies.


The SoutheastHEALTH Ambassadors are committed to community outreach to educate residents about preventing heart disease and responding properly when symptoms present through programs available at SoutheastHEALTH.
