It’s hard to believe it’s already November. We hope this finds you well and safe as we start the holiday season. While many things right now feel like they are on hold, the American Heart Association’s advocacy work is continuing.
We know the state will face some tough decisions in 2021 due to COVID-19. While we know lawmakers will be facing difficult choices we hope with your help we can continue advocating for important health issues including:

- Tobacco and e-cigarette control issues
- SNAP and funding for other food access programs to help the most vulnerable in our state
- A sugary drink fee to reduce consumption levels and to fund needed obesity prevention and health promotion programs addressing glaring health disparities in our state.
- Improving keiki health in state-licensed early childhood education centers.
As we do our planning for next year, we would like to hear from you about the issues you care about and how you would like to be involved. Please take a few minutes and answer our short (only 8 question) survey.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to working together to build a healthier Hawaii.
