On February 7th, dozens of AHA You're the Cure advocates gathered at the state capitol for 2019 West Virginia Advocacy Day.

Mountaineers from across the state gathered at the Capitol to meet with their lawmakers to discuss policies like Telephone CPR, protection of local smoke-free indoor air laws and funding for tobacco and obesity prevention programs. Advocates came from all backgrounds, from board members and long-time volunteers to many students from the University of Charleston School of Nursing and School of Pharmacy. The day ended on a powerful note as our advocates were invited to the WV Senate floor for a photo op as the Senate proclaimed the day “Go Red for Women Day” in the Mountain State.
