Will you help us make Oregon a healthier state on March 3rd? We invite you to join us at the Capitol for our annual American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Lobby Day on March 3rd.
2015 is going to be a big year for heart and stroke health policy and we want YOU to be a part of it! We will discuss CPR in School legislation with lawmakers. With your help last year we built awareness about this issue and we hope this will be the year we pass this important legislation.
We will also ask lawmakers to support legislation and budget requests for:
Tobacco Prevention – Legislators will have the opportunity to invest money in evidence-based programs that reduce tobacco use—Oregon’s number one preventable cause of death. For every dollar invested by the state roughly five dollars is saved.
- Junk Food Marketing in Schools – We want to prohibit the marketing of unhealthy food and beverages to our children in schools.
No advocacy experience is necessary as training will be provided. We hope you will join us for this exciting and important day!
