This year Yale University, Yale Cardiovascular Medicine and Yale New Haven Health joined forces as proud sponsors of this year’s American Heart Association’s Greater New Haven Heart Walk.  This year’s walk was a great success with nearly 800 walkers raising $58,000 for the American Heart Association, the highest donation out of all other participating companies!
