On behalf of your American Heart Association Wisconsin Advocacy team, we hope you and your loved ones are doing well and staying healthy. We are grateful for the millions of people, like you, who have worked with us relentlessly to build healthier communities for everyone, everywhere. In this new reality, there will be new challenges for all of us as we press forward TOGETHER to achieve our mission.
For many months, we have been working alongside amazing Wisconsin You're the Cure advocates--like you--to create a tobacco-free future for our kids. We're excited to share that the Senate Health Committee passed Wisconsin's Tobacco 21 bill. We will be sure to be in touch when we have more news to share on the progress of this legislation that is critical to the health of Wisconsin's youth.
We also wanted to take this opportunity to provide resources on how to minimize risk when out and about, stay active, eat healthy and be well when at home. We also hope you'll take a moment to watch Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, Chief Medical Officer for Prevention at the American Heart Association, answer questions many of you may have about COVID-19, particularly for high risk CVD patients.
Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or need additional information. Stay safe, and thank you for all you do as an incredible American Heart Association You're the Cure advocate!
