American Heart Association Los Angeles welcomes Nudj Health founder and CEO
Yuri Sudhakar to Board of Directors
The American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all, welcomes Yuri Sudhakar, founder and CEO of Nudj Health, to its Los Angeles Board of Directors.
In addition to joining the board, Sudhakar’s company, Nudj Health, has committed as a sponsor to support the Association’s efforts to eliminate high blood pressure as a health disparity in LA’s under-resourced communities. Nudj is a lifestyle medicine company that provides behavioral health and lifestyle interventions for patients with chronic disease and co-morbid mental health issues in collaboration with primary and specialty providers nationwide.
“It’s a privilege to join the board of the American Heart Association Los Angeles and to have Nudj Health support their efforts,” said Sudhakar. “I’m looking forward to working together to decrease hypertension’s impact among Angelenos, especially those in underserved communities, by making high- quality, whole-person care more accessible. I was recently diagnosed with hypertension, and I can honestly say that it’s all about having the right tools and collaborative care team in place so that you can make better lifestyle choices and ultimately improve both your physical and mental health. Nudj is excited to collaborate with the AHA to help advance equitable health and well-being for all.”
For nearly a century, the American Heart Association has saved and improved lives by funding lifesaving scientific research, advocating for public health policies, advancing access to quality health care for all and much more. In Los Angeles, the Association is currently focused on pursuing policy, systems and environmental change to improve nutrition security, reduce uncontrolled high blood pressure and end tobacco use and nicotine addiction.
