Minnesota names to American Heart Association 2011-2012 Affiliate Board of Directors

One of the greatest assets the American Heart Association has is outstanding volunteer leadership. We are pleased to announce Alex Mitchell, resident of Minnesota will serve as a new AHA affiliate board member.

Treasurer - Alex Mitchell, senior director of business risk management at UnitedHealth Group in Minneapolis. Alex is a heart disease survivor, having had emergency heart surgery to replace his aortic valve at age 25. His son also had pulmonary stenosis and a balloon valvuloplasty at birth to repair his pulmonary valve. As a result of being touched personally by heart disease, he feels passionate about our mission. Over the last five years, he has served on the Midwest Affiliate's Banking Request for Proposal and Investment subcommittees and been involved with the Twin Cities Heart Walk.
