What a fantastic day…it never fails!  Lobby Day on the Hill was truly inspirational as I connected with my leaders and urged for action for heart disease and stroke with regards to NIH funding, CDC funding, and healthcare reform.  I am very fortunate to have been a part of this process in being able to feel like I truly can take action with an issue so close to my heart (no pun intended!).  My group was able to meet with Senators Kerry and Kennedy’s staff, and I once again was able to meet with my Representative, Congressman Jim McGovern, in person and receive his valuable support on the topics discussed.

Thank you, AHA and all of its volunteers and supporters, for another great Lobby Day!
