Advocates Participate in AHA Lobby Day on the Hill


Two South Dakota advocates made the trip to Washington DC in April to participate in the AHA Lobby Day on the Hill.  The 2 day experience consisted of attending the Rally for Medical Research, advocacy training, and visits to Capitol Hill.  Advocates Tonya Kraft and Dave Amundson, and staff member Pamela Miller, visted with Senators Tim Johnson and John Thune about AHA priorities to restore funding to the National Institutes of Health to pre-sequester levels, and to allocate 35 million to the Million Hearts campaign to raise awareness for high blood pressure and the related health concerns brought on by hypertension.
