Vision Statement:
All citizens of the world are entitled to the benefits of modern life-saving medical and cardiovascular care.

Mission Statement:
Hearts Around the World
, Inc. supports medical and cardiovascular training programs in third world and emerging nations through hands-on education and demonstrations. Our ultimate goal is to provide physicians and staff of the local hospitals with modern medical information and techniques required to care for all of their patients in need.

In August of 2008, Dr. Robert Jarrett and his wife Mrs. Menoo Afkari-Jarrett established a new not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing cardiovascular education in third world nations. Hearts Around the World will sponsor teams of cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses and technologists who will travel to other nations with the goal of teaching their physicians the latest therapies and surgical techniques in the fight against cardiovascular disease.
