We are thrilled to announce that over 320 people attended You’re the Cure on the Hill in Washington DC on June 25-27! Volunteer advocates from across the United States came together to advocate for issues that impact cardiovascular health.
During You’re The Cure on the Hill, advocates discussed the following issues with their Congressional delegations in an effort to help lift the burden of cardiovascular disease by:
- Increasing National Institutes of Health (NIH) medical research funding.
- Improving access to telestroke care by supporting the Furthering Access to Stroke Telemedicine (FAST) Act.
- Increasing access to cardiac rehabilitation services.
Volunteers also took this extraordinary opportunity to visit with members of the US Senate about the American Health Care Act.
The AHA You're the Cure on the Hill event takes place every two years in Washington, D.C. If you are interested in attending a future event, please contact Pamela.firstname.lastname@example.org
