We need your voice! One of the most impactful ways you can advocate for the American Heart Association is to meet with your legislators. Our Minnesota Lobby Day offers you the opportunity to do just that!
Tuesday, February 12, 2013, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Join other advocates to speak with Minnesota legislators in a strong, unified voice about the importance of fighting heart disease and stroke. Attend workshops and training and then put your skills to the test when you meet with your state legislators about:
1. Support sustainable state funding for the Statewide Health Improvement Program.
2. Increase the opportunity for children to be physically active before, during and after the school day. Support funding for the State Safe Routes to School program.
3. Require that all Minnesota newborns are screened for critical congenital heart defects using pulse oximetry.
Breakfast and lunch included. Students are also encouraged to attend this daylong event. There's no cost to attend but advance registration is required.
