On behalf of the American Heart Association, welcome to You’re the Cure Kentucky!
The American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association are hard at work, advocating for life-saving policies from Frankfort to Washington, D.C.
Your fellow Kentucky advocates have already accomplished some amazing things: legislation to improve stroke treatment and outcomes, policies to allow schools to open their facilities to the community for physical activity, and smoke-free workplaces in communities across the Commonwealth. But this is only the beginning, and your help is needed to continue the fight against cardiovascular disease, the No. 1 killer in Kentucky and the nation.
This website is full of great information and ways for you to get involved and make a difference right away. With just the click of your mouse, you can easily contact your elected officials to speak out on heart and stroke issues in our action center or sign up to attend one of our upcoming events.
We want to get to know you! Share your story to let us know why fighting heart disease and stroke matter personally to you.
As part of You’re the Cure, we think you’ll truly enjoy the chance to meet fellow advocates, discuss heart and stroke policy with your legislators, and work together to come up with new ways to help our community stay heart healthy and stroke smart. Please let us know if you ever have any questions!
Be sure to come to this site often for great opportunities to connect with other advocates in your area and stay up-to-date on the most important ways you can help promote stronger, healthier communities. And tell your friends to join us!
For a Kentucky that’s free of heart disease and stroke, You’re the Cure.
