On March 5, 2014, the American Heart Association held a Lunch and Learn at the State Capital for You’re the Cure advocates. Senator Linda Chesterfield, a supporter of the Association’s policies, addressed nine volunteers. She applauded their efforts to support, advocate and involve themselves in the Association’s mission.
Afterwards, volunteers enjoyed a Q & A session with Senator Chesterfield.
Amanda Story, AHA contract lobbyist, spoke to the group about the State’ Private Option healthcare plan. She explained how it progressed through the legislative process during the 2014 Fiscal Session. Finally, Barbara Kumpe, Government Relations Director, reviewed the State Public Policy agenda. She also spoke about how the networkers could help educate and recruit additional members to the You’re the Cure network.
