My Experience on Capitol Hill
It was such a wonderful experience to attend You’re the Cure on the Hill with the American Heart Association. As a health care professional who is personally connected to this work, I had the opportunity to speak to Michigan legislators on my “why.”
Happy Holidays, Superheroes!
As we enjoy this season of thanks, we would be remiss if we didn’t express our sincerest thanks to you, our advocates. Though we live in different places across the country, we all come together to use our superhero advocacy powers – you are saving lives by using your voice!

Eric Douglas, West Virginia
If anyone should have known the signs and symptoms of heart disease and heart attack, it was Eric Douglas. A former CPR trainer, EMT and scuba instructor who has trained more than 1,000 people to perform CPR, he still denied he was having problems. He wrote it off as “heart burn," and convinced himself he had just gotten in really bad shape.
