Wednesday, 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM
On September 18th, the American Heart Association will join partner groups for the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day in Washington, DC, to continue to stress to our nation's decision makers that funding for the National Institutes of Health must be prioritized.
While we can't physically bring every You're the Cure advocate to Capitol Hill for the event, every advocate can still 'be there' with us by participating in our 'Hearts for Research' photo petition! Cuts to medical research affect us all, so whether you are a heart disease or stroke survivor, caregiver, researcher, medical professional, or advocate, we need your help to show Members of Congress the faces of medical research! Add your name and picture to our photo petition today!
A group of 30 of your fellow You're the Cure advocates will deliver the names and photos collected from advocates- like YOU- as they meet face-to-face with lawmakers to deliver the message: We need cures, not cuts!
Don't miss this opportunity! Be sure to sign the petition and add your photo today!
