On Thursday, February 4th, the American Heart Association Advocacy Team hosted a Lunch & Learn event at the Arkansas State Capitol. State Representative Laurie Rushing and Representative Karilyn Brown both spoke about heart and stroke awareness. They also encouraged advocates attending the event get involved in the political process and speak out in support of heart healthy policies. The AHA Advocacy Team shared brief summaries of policy platforms and grassroots activities for 2016. Attendees were inspired to get more involved and make a difference in the health of Arkansans.
