A Healthier Commonwealth for 2015!


Happy 2015, we are already hitting the ground running to help build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke in 2015.  

We are working to support a policy that would require specific minutes per week of physical education in elementary and middle school; to require that we serve healthy options in state owned buildings; to secure public funding to expand our MA Food Trust initiative helping to increase the amount of healthy food being offered in low and moderate income communities; and to clarify liability rules for the use of school owned recreational facilities for the purpose of physical activity. We are also continuing our work to secure Statewide Funding for local School districts to implement CPR as a Graduation Policy and to develop a Coordinated Stroke System of Care to improve the treatment of the stroke patient.

I look forward to working together this year to continue to engage your elected officials on these critical lifesaving policies.
