On September 29, the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI in Indianapolis and the National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention will join people around the globe in observing World Heart Day.  In honor of the day, we’re challenging people in Indiana and beyond to take the Just One Thing Challenge for Heart Health.

Here's how it works:


Tell us what you chose here.


Everyone who registers will be entered into a drawing for a fun prize!


Choose just one thing to improve your heart health.


Not sure what to do?  We’ve got lots of great suggestions, along with simple explanations of how your one thing can improve your health.


Share your success on Facebook and Twitter


Post photos, videos, encouragement and successes  with #JustOneThing


Do your one thing
from now until September 29.


Encourage your family, friends and co-workers to take the Challenge and join us for community events.



Find out if you are the winner of the Just One Thing prize.

On World Heart Day we’ll pull one name at random from among everyone who registered to take the challenge.

Indiana, Let’s Be #DoneWith41!

As a national leader in public health education, the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health is keenly aware that Indiana ranks 41 out of 50 states in overall health and 39 out of 50 for the prevalence of heart attacks.  We’re committed to working with our academic and community partners to improve those numbers.  Starting with just one thing really can make a difference.  Let’s prove it… together!


At IUPUI and across the Indiana University network, we are #DoneWith41.
