Massachusetts Heart on the Hill!

by Allyson P. on Monday, May 6, 2013

We are looking for passionate advocates for our upcoming Heart on the Hill Event. Do you have a CPR, AED or Critical Congenital Heart personal story? Are you a medical professional who is an expert on these issues? Are you a heart survivor?  We would love to have you participate in our Heart on the Hill event at the Massachusetts State House on June 5, 2013. This event will help spread the lifesaving message about the importance of CPR training, access to AEDs and Pulse Ox Screening for Newborns! We are looking for people like you who will share your story with your legislators about how sudden cardiac arrest or congenital heart defects has affected your life either as a survivor, caregiver or passionate advocate.

The day will begin at 10:00 AM with an Advocacy 101 to help prepare you for your legislative meetings. We will provide a boxed lunch and then you will have the opportunity to meet with your legislators to share your story and express the importance of the screening newborns for critical congenital heart defects, CPR Training and access to AEDs. Speaking points will be provided as well as a staff person to go on the visits. The day will end by 4:00 PM.
