Last Wednesday, Health Education was in the spotlight at a legislative breakfast co-hosted by the American Heart Association and the Buckeye Healthy Schools Alliance. The day started with informal conversations regarding the need for state adopted health education standards. Following a heart healthy breakfast, legislators and staff were given the opportunity to have their questions answered by a group of experts on the topic. Special thanks to Mary Chace, Judy Jagger-Mescher, Joe Dake and Heather Vilvens!
Currently, Representatives Vernon Sykes and Lynn Wachtmann are seeking other legislators to join them as co-sponsors. Each also spoke at the event and discussed their support. They also urged their colleagues to support the pending legislation.
