Thanks to everyone who joined this month's You're the Cure Southeast Chat. If you missed it, watch the replay here.
On this call, we spoke with several AHA issue experts about current advocacy work to:
- Reduce tobacco use among young people and empower them to identify and reject the harmful impacts of tobacco in their communities.
- Improve school nutrition for the tens of millions of students who each day receive free, low-cost or full-priced meals at school as part of the National School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program.
- Help families stretch their dollars and buy more fruits and vegetables, which means that children have access to nutritious foods and are taught healthy behaviors, establishing lifelong habits that will support their overall health and wellness.
If you'd like to be more engaged in any of these efforts, message us at [email protected].
Sign up for our next chat on Monday, October 25th at 11:30 a.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. CT. We plan to discuss our advocacy efforts to make streets safe for everyone.
As a reminder, we host these monthly 30-minute You're the Cure Southeast chats to provide you with a behind-the-scenes look at our public policy efforts and to help you become a stronger advocate for a world of longer, healthier lives.
