Last month You're the Cure advocates and Colorado lawmakers attended Advocating for Heart at the state capitol to raise awareness of World Stroke Day. The event highlighted the mission work of the American Heart Association | American Stroke Association to advance stoke care throughout the state. A state proclamation recognizing World Stroke Day and issued by Governor Hickenlooper was presented to the volunteers. You're the Cure advocates also had the opportunity to learn more about the legislative process and how to get involved in advocacy efforts. Special guest speaker and stroke survivor Aliesha Nuttall also shared her inspirational story with attendees.
