What does the GAT do? GAT members participate in grassroots activities including, contacting legislators, sharing their story on social media, recruiting new You're The Cure network advocates and spreading the mission and message of the American Heart Association.
Why would I volunteer for the GAT? Members of our Grassroots Action Team bring awareness to our issues and promote public policy that improves the health and lives of individuals and communities in Oklahoma City. We need young professionals, business leaders, health care professionals, moms, dads, survivors and anyone else that has a personal passion for heart and stroke advocacy to join us so that together we can create a healthier Oklahoma City!
