Legislative Session Kicks off January 14!

by Krystle N. on Monday, January 6, 2014

Alabama’s legislative session kicks off this Monday, January 14.  We will only be successful with your support.

Last year, You’re the Cure advocates helped pass an important regulation, ensuring that all newborns will receive a Pulse Ox screening before leaving the hospital.  This simple, non-invasive test helps detect congenital heart defects.

Your involvement has never been more important to making hearts healthy!  Here’s what 2014 has in store:

  • Bringing affordable, fresh, healthy food to underserved areas through Healthy Food Financing Initiatives;
  • Monitoring the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion; and
  • Protecting workers by passing smoke free ordinances in cities and counties that still allow indoor smoking in certain venues

But we can’t be successful without your support.  Hurry and invite five friends, relatives or co-workers to help you make Alabama a healthier state in 2014.

We’re counting on your support to build healthier lives across our great state.
