Events and Programs



The Signature Program for the ABC is the Spirit of the Heart - Preventing Cardiovascular Disease. This program is in several US cities each year. The programs are developed to aid people in understanding that heart disease is preventable, and heart healthy practices are important for longevity. This program has made measurable differences in our previous years, including legislation leading to health care reform. The 3 Day Event consists of a Leadership Forum, a Main Event, and a message from the pulpit.
