A strong cardiac system of care is essential for our diverse, rural state. North Dakota has the unique opportunity to invest our resources in the most up-to-date system and technology improvements and reduce the devastating impact of heart disease and stroke on North Dakota families and reduce the cost of healthcare across our state.
Throughout the upcoming legislative session, AHA volunteers will be advocating for several appropriation requests that can strengthen our system of care and the chain of survival for victims of heart attack.
When the time comes, advocates can help by activating on alerts and messaging their state elected leaders on the following appropriation requests:
- Cardiac System of Care which will sustain and enhance our investment in STEMI system platform and improve outcomes for STEMI heart attack.
- Million Hearts to provide education and resources to address 2 of North Dakota’s leading chronic disease risk factors – high blood pressure and smoking.
- CPR Training in Schools to help build a community of CPR ready citizens and engage our youth in healthcare careers.
- EMS Database System to bring technology and system improvements up to date and improve outcomes.
Your voice is an important part of improving outcomes for victims of heart attack and stroke. Survival is why your voice is needed during the 2015 Legislative session.
