We all have stress — at work, at home, and on the road. Sometimes we can feel especially stressed because of a bad interaction with someone, too much work, or everyday hassles like getting stuck in traffic.

Trying to cut back on sugar? Why not give these a try?

In these warmer months, it’s nice to have a sip of a refreshing beverage to cool you down. Many of us go for something that reminds us of summers past, like lemonade or cola. While these drinks might remind us of times gone by, they can also be loaded with added sugar.

Join us for our next webinar June 25 - The Menthol Myth

While many things right now feel like they are on hold, the American Heart Association’s advocacy work continues, and we wanted to extend an invitation to join us and our coalition partners for a free webinar on Thursday June 25 at 12pm.

Join us for an in-depth presentation by Dr. Rose Marie Robertson, Deputy Chief Science and Medical Officer and Ashley Bell, Vice President of Advocacy Consulting at the American Heart Association. They will go over the science behind menthol, why it makes smoking/vaping easy to start and hard to quit and how policy loopholes that leave menthol on the market can undermine the whole fight to keep our kids healthy and safe.

Please register in advance at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_6bA6lEW0Sfe8FrLQEWoR4Q
