Advocate Spotlight: Bethany Miller
This month we are thrilled to spotlight a passionate advocate at the American Heart Association, Bethany Miller. As a volunteer-driven organization, the American Heart Association would not be able to accomplish its goals, fulfill its mission and make a difference in the health of our community without amazing advocates like Bethany!
You're the Cure on the Hill 2017: A New Mexico Perspective
At the end of June, more than 330 American Heart Association volunteers and staff from 46 states, including New Mexico, traveled to Washington, D.C. to advocate for federal research support and key legislation that will benefit Americans with cardiovascular disease (CVD). The advocates urged their members of Congress to prioritize National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding for heart and stroke research and to support bills that would expand access to stroke telemedicine (telestroke) and cardiac rehabilitation. They also encouraged their lawmakers to oppose the American Health Care Act or any Senate substitute that reduces access to affordable and adequate health care coverage.
