My Heart. My Voice.

Lives are impacted everyday by heart disease and stroke. Whether it's our own health, or the lives of family, friends, or co-workers, a lot is at stake to fight Mississippi's No. 1 and No. 3 killers. But, together we have the power to make a difference by speaking out for policies that help build healthier communities and ultimately healthier lives.

Through ”My Heart, My Voice, My Mississippi,” we invite folks across the Magnolia State to advocate with us for policy change in their communities. Right now, we're working to:

  • Ensure 911 callers receive CPR instructions when needed through a statewide T-CPR policy; 
  • Help 200,000+ Mississippians have access to affordable health care through Medicaid expansion;  
  • Put water within reach for students by increasing access to water bottle filling stations in schools;
  • Secure federal funding for MSDH Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Office to focus on addressing health equity and disparities; and 
  • Grow the Good by helping people who rely on SNAP bring home more fruits and vegetables, giving a boost to their health, along with local farmers and the local economy.

We'd love to know which issues interest you the most! Take our brief survey and we'll keep you posted on those efforts.

It takes all of us coming together with our voices, and our stories, to show lawmakers we want policies that build healthier lives. What's your story? Are you a heart attack survivor? Have you lost someone to stroke? Do you have family history of heart disease? Do you want your kids to have healthy futures? We invite you to share your story with us today.
