April 28th is CHD and Pulse Ox Awareness Day at the State Capitol in Harrisburg!

by Kimberly R. on Tuesday, March 25, 2014

We invite you to join us on April 28th at the State Capitol in Harrisburg for CHD and Pulse Ox Awareness Day!  Children with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD), their families and other volunteer advocates will join the AHA to raise awareness and generate support for House Bill 1420, legislation that would ensure all newborns are screened for CHD using pulse oximetry.

This legislation unanimously passed the House in November, so our focus turns to the Senate where we need YOUR help to push it across the finish line!

 

Below, we've provided links for the following:  Pulse Oximetry Fact Sheet, directions to the PA State Capitol, and parking in Harrisburg.  Lunch will be provided in the Capitol Cafeteria on the day of event.
