TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- The American Heart Association is honoring all of the work and research being done at Florida State University, and sharing how that's impacting our lives, health, community and future.

The organization is highlighting those contributions with a special event, "FSU: A Leader in American Heart Association Research."

Right now, more than $400,000 is being funded at FSU by the American Heart Association, and experts are using that to perform state-of-the-art research at the College of Medicine.

Officials say this also shows how funds raised from American Heart Association our Big Bend Heart Walk and Heart Ball in Tallahassee are staying local.

The event will shine a light on "local researchers who are making life-changing advancements to cardiovascular treatment and care that will have an international impact."

The 2016 Research Reception is Wednesday, January 13 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at The Edison.
