We are looking for volunteers to take a meeting with their member of Congress while they are in town this August.
Important federal advocacy goals for Congress this year include:
- CR (Cardiac Rehab) – changing a key Medicare provision so that those who have survived a coronary event can have easier access to rehabilitation programs
- FA (FAST Act) – helping connect more stroke patients to life-saving telemedicine services
- CNR (Childhood Nutrition Reauthorization) – protecting strong school nutrition standards
- NIH (National Institutes of Health) – increasing federal research funding
This is an important opportunity for us to get heart and stroke issues in front of our federal elected officials. If you can help us out, please contact Jess Nolan ([email protected] or 952-278-7928) as soon as possible.
