It’s that time of year: Registration for the 2015 NC AHA You’re the Cure at the Capitol State Lobby Day has opened!
Plan to help us turn the halls of the General Assembly red, and discuss important heart health issues with our lawmakers.
This year the event will be on Monday, March 30th and Tuesday, March 31st and won’t be the same if YOU don’t join us!
The event will begin at 3:00 pm on Monday, March 30th with an issues overview, advocacy training, and dinner with your fellow advocates. The following day will be spent at the legislature, meeting face to face with lawmakers, and will wrap up at 3:00 pm. Final registration and event details will be emailed this month.
This year we will be talking about important policies that will build a healthier North Carolina. These issues include:
· Funding to create a statewide Healthy Corner Store initiative that increases the amount of healthy food offered in existing corner stores. Support to close the coverage gap to assure access to health care for adults earning up to 138% of the federal poverty level.
· Funding for tobacco use prevention and cessation programs.
Whether you are a You’re the Cure member joining us for the first time, or you are one of our seasoned advocates, we are excited to have you attend.
Your presence is needed and you will make a difference. Make plans now to join us. Please RSVP to Kacie Kennedy by March 17th, 2015.
We hope to see you there!
