2009-10 Advocacy Pulse State Legislative Wrap-Up Now Available

The American Heart Association’s advocacy team just released a special State Legislative Wrap-Up edition of the Advocacy Pulse newsletter for fiscal year 2009-10. It showcases the remarkable progress staff and volunteers across the nation have made over the past year in helping to achieve the association’s mission. The newsletter outlines advances in legislative issues that benefit heart disease and stroke patients including tobacco control, nutrition, heart and stroke public funding, emergency cardiac care and stroke systems of care, physical education, acute events and access and quality of care. Traditional association events such as Lobby Day, Heart Walks, Heart off the Hill and Go Red For Women that have educated thousands of people about heart disease and stroke are also highlighted. These policy wins wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of thousands advocates, association volunteers, donors and staff.
