How to Make Tennessee Healthier in 2014

by Denise C. on Tuesday, January 7, 2014

The 2014 session of the Tennessee General Assembly will convene at noon on Tuesday, January 14.  Excitement is building about the potential policy changes that will aid in making Tennessee healthier and a state others can learn from.  We will play an important role in crafting these policies and YOUR VOICE is incredibly important to the work that the American Heart Association does at the Tennessee State Capitol. 

Our overall goal is to support and advocate for public policies that will help improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths by coronary heart disease and stroke by 20 percent by 2020.

Over the next several months, we'll send action alerts to You're the Cure advocates, updating them on our issues and offering them the chance to help by emailing or calling lawmakers or even visiting the State Capitol.  We ask all advocates to please take the time to respond to these requests – it truly only takes a minute.  Legislators want and need to hear from you, their constituents. The American Heart Association has found that effective grassroots campaigns are vital to making positive changes to health policy in the state of Tennessee.  

Also, be sure to "Like" us on our You're the Cure- Tennessee Facebook page.  This is a great place to stay updated with the latest advocacy activity in Tennessee.  

You are the cure!

  • I'll be at the Capitol tomorrow meeting with legislators. Don't be shy, get to know your representatives and advocate for a healthier Tennessee. Each of us needs to do our part in helping Tennessee lead the South in becoming more healthy. Get Moving!
