Why is advocating with the American Heart Association important to you? Health is such an important part of our individual lives and our community as a whole. I feel that advocating with the American Heart Association is helping to give a voice to those who have suffered, may be suffering, and families whose lives have been touched by heart diseases.
As a new Grassroots Action Team member, what are you most looking forward to? I am looking forward to getting involved within the community and networking with Colorado government leaders as well as fellow Grassroots Action Team members.
