Now that the holidays are over, state legislators will be getting back to work and the American Heart Association is gearing up to advocate for the issues that are important to all of you. We hope that this year, with your help, will be a great one with many successes.
This year in Pennsylvania, we are going to be focusing on the following issues:
Smoke-free Pennsylvania: Many people in Pennsylvania are still in danger from secondhand smoke exposure and we need to act quickly. Help us protect the health of hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians.
Pulse Oximetry Screenings: When a baby is born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD), the emotional toll on family and friends is enormous, not to mention the financial toll of undiagnosed CHDs and its impact throughout the community. Early detection initiates early treatment, which saves lives.
We could not accomplish what we do without the efforts of our volunteers. So take the time today to send an email to your legislators on the issues listed above.
Let’s get to work!
