Help secure funding for this life-saving AED program today!

This is a critical time in Congress. Lawmakers are deciding on their funding priorities and the next round of budget negotiations are beginning. Even in this difficult economy, there are several federally-funded programs that are vital to the heart community, and we need to let our lawmakers know they must be a priority. One such program helps buy and place automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in rural communities. Unfortunately, the Rural and Community Access to Emergency Devices Program only has the resources to operate in 12 states. Tell Congress to support this life-saving program today!

It's time to boost heart and stroke research

Imagine if we didn't know that smoking lead to heart disease or stroke. Think about all of the lives lost if we didn't have AEDs. How many stroke survivors would we have if it weren't for clot-busting drugs? We say it time and again, but research saves lives! Will you contact your lawmaker today and tell them to make heart and stroke research a priority?

Tell Congress: Kids Will Eat Healthier School Lunches

A recent study reveals that most elementary age students are accepting the healthier school meals required by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  Help share this important news with your Members of Congress, as they make important decisions about the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

Let's Make Physical Education Part of Every Student's School Day!

Regular, quality Physical Education (PE) in schools is critical to the health and academic success of today's students.  With childhood obesity affecting one in three children, more needs to be done to increase physical activity where kids live, learn, and play.  Right now, Congress can help improve PE in our nation's schools by passing the Fitness Integrated with Teaching (FIT) Kids Act.  Send a quick message today to ask your legislators to step-up for FIT Kids!
