Support Heart Healthy Policies in New Hampshire this New Year


January kicks off the 2016 legislative session in New Hampshire.  Hearings will begin soon on hundreds of bills including the American Heart Association’s policy priorities.  Each year the AHA presents a robust policy agenda for our lawmakers to support that will focus on building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke in our state.  As a You’re The Cure Advocate, please keep a watch on Action Alerts and updates you will receive in the coming weeks and months on policy issues to help make our communities healthier and safer, including:

  • Encouraging schools to ensure healthy nutrition environments by protecting our children from unhealthy food and beverage marketing on school property;
  • Putting thousands of trained lifesavers in NH communities every year by seeing that all students receive hands-on training in CPR prior to their graduation from high school;
  • Creating a Complete Streets policy for NH communities that provide safe and convenient roadways for all modes of transportation including bicyclists and pedestrians; and,
  • Protecting kids from Tobacco by raising the age to purchase tobacco and e-cigarettes from 18 to 21.
