Buroker, national board chairman of the American Heart Association (AHA) and 1984 graduate of DePauw University, joined actress Jane Seymour and others to ring the opening bell this morning as the New York Stock Exchange began its trading day. Buroker and his colleagues used the opportunity to promote the AHA's Start! program, which calls on all Americans to commit to fighting the major causes of heart disease and stroke in adults through a comprehensive walking and nutrition program.

The Start! program recognizes employers who champion the health of their Andy Burokeremployees and work to create a culture of physical activity and health in the workplace. Partners in the program include AstraZeneca PLC, ConAgra Foods, Inc., and SUBWAY® Restaurants.

Founded in 1924, the American Heart Association today is the nation's oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to reducing disability and death from cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
