Another Successful Student Day at the Capitol!
On March 28th, the American Heart Association held the third annual Student Day at the Capitol in Springfield, Illinois. Students from Illinois State University and University of Illinois Springfield, led by You’re the Cure volunteers Dr. Jacqueline Lanier and Scott Saxe, attended an advocacy training in the morning and then spent the afternoon lobbying at the Capitol. The students asked their lawmakers to protect and preserve the daily physical education (P.E.) requirement in Illinois schools and to include a sugary drinks tax in the state budget package.
