Advocate Spotlight: Lee Meadows, Ohio

by Melissa B. on Sunday, September 22, 2013

Lee Meadows Ohio

 After my recovery from open heart surgery in 1999, I wanted to give back the support that I received so I joined Mended Hearts, a group that offers much needed emotional support to those recovering from heart disease. I have been an accredited visitor in local hospitals ever since, am also a You’re the Cure advocate for the American Heart Association and am a past board member.

I have dedicated my life to educating the public on heart disease. Some of the best experiences I have had with AHA have been when I have traveled to Washington, DC.  Speaking with Congressional officials about the importance of heart disease and stroke related issues is imperative. I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to advocate for the AHA to do so. My work through Mended Hearts and AHA has been the most rewarding work of my life.
