  • Tell Your Representative To Vote YES On More NIH Funding

    The U.S. House of Representatives is working on bill called the 21st Century Cures Act. The bill seeks to advance the discovery and development of new medical treatments for patients, such as by providing a much needed boost of money for the National Institutes of Health through the creation of the "NIH Innovation Fund". Specifically, the Fund would allocate an additional $10 billion for new, innovative NIH research over a five year period or $2 billion a year. Please urge your House member to vote YES on this legislation.

  • Tell Your Legislators to Cosponsor the FAST Act Today!

    The FAST (Furthering Access to Stroke Telemedicine) Act has been introduced in both the House and Senate. These bills would expand Medicare’s coverage of telestroke services. Right now we need as many members of Congress as possible to cosponsor these bills to show support for increasing telestroke access. Ask you legislators to cosponsor the FAST Act today!

  • 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!
