Dr. Tara Underwood, Columbus
Our 2017 Georgia Advocacy Committee is composed of eight individuals from across the state with different occupations, who have a great interest in advocating for policy change for heart-health issues. Throughout the year, we will introduce some of our members. Today, we'd like you to meet our vice chair of the committee, Tara Underwood of Columbus.

Mugtalk Monday: Michael Charles
This month, we started 'Mugtalk Mondays' where we will highlight extraordinary You're the Cure advocates across the Greater Southeast Affiliate of the American Heart Association. Michael Charles is the first advocate we highlighted!
When I met Michael Charles, I knew he was extraordinary. His passion for educating the public about early CPR and the use of an AED is contagious. When he's working as a paramedic, he's out in the field saving lives. When he's off the clock, you may just find him at the Georgia Capitol, ten manikins on the marble floor, music pumping at 100 beats per minute to help keep time of chest compressions, surrounded by visitors and legislators alike.
