You're the Cure on the Hill Resources

We are excited that you'll be joining us for You're the Cure (YTC) on the Hill on October 16th - 18th.

During You're the Cure on the Hill, we will be asking Congress to pave the path forward by:

  • Increasing federal funding for life-saving medical research conducted by the National Institutes of Health and for prevention programs at the Centers for Disease Control, including Heart and Stroke Prevention, NHLBI and WISEWOMAN.
  • Supporting legislation that would ban flavors in all tobacco products.
  • Supporting legislation that will protect patients from surprise medical bills.

Here is a 1-pager that includes talking points about the three main policy issues: AHA Talking Points.  Training on all three topics will be provided on October 16th, and below are a few more resources if you want to familiarize yourself with the issues before coming to D.C.  We will be updating this page regularly so please visit again to find helpful new resources.
