Louisiana Advocacy Plans Are Underway!

by Krystle N. on Thursday, August 1, 2013

Just because it is summer time does not mean that American Heart Association staff is taking a break! 

We already have begun planning for the 2014 legislative session. During the past several months, we have met with obesity and tobacco coalition partners and planned tobacco and policy trainings for the coming months. We also have participated in a coordinated school health summit to learn how schools can play an integral part in our children's health.

At this time, we will focus on:

  • local smoke-free efforts
  • CPR as a high school graduation requirement
  • obesity prevention
  • acute care

Please look for alerts concerning these issues. We will need your help to spread the word to your lawmakers about policies for improved heart health!
