Soon after ringing in the new year, many southeastern states will begin their legislative sessions. This will be your chance to speak up for statewide laws to help build healthier, longer lives. Heart disease is still the leading cause of death in America and advocating is an important way we can work together to make an impact and create healthier communities.
We want to help you prepare for your state's session!
- Sign up for our next You're the Cure Southeast Chat on Monday, January 24th when we'll share tips on how to be a strong advocate during session.
