Meet AHA Advocate, PJ Jones!
What is your why?
What brought you to be an advocate for the American Heart Association?
I am currently a member of The Multiculture Committee and I wanted to branch out with AHA and see what other volunteer opportunities were out there. So here I am and it is very educational as far as getting your voice heard in other ways. I am really enjoying it.
What issues or policies are you most passionate about and why?
My passion lies with the young people. Getting them educated through the AHA on : Eating right-bringing them supplies needed to grow their own vegetables and fruits. Exercise-staying active. Just maintaining a healthy body, because they are our future and they are the ones that will take care of us someday.
What is your favorite advocacy memory or experience so far and what made it great?
My first meeting downtown at AHA learning how to take an idea and turn it into a bill. IT WAS AWESOME!! I would encourage all advocacy volunteers to attend a Summit!
What is your favorite way to be active?
Walking in the AHA Heart Walk...
What is your favorite fruit or vegetable?
ALL FRUITS and greens-all of them.
