Heart Healthy Day at the Statehouse a Success

by Anne S. on Wednesday, February 6, 2013

On Tuesday, February 5, 2013, Indiana held their annual Legislative Screenings Day and Day at the Statehouse.  The day started with heart-health screenings for legislators, staff and the public followed by a heart-healthy breakfast.  Nearly 50 advocates from across the state participated in an advocacy training and issue briefing before they met with their lawmakers to ask for support of shared-use agreements, complete streets in Indiana and to protect funding for the Tobacco Prevention and Cessation and Minority Health Initiatives programs.  The day was even promoted on the local CBS station, view the clip here.  Check out photos from the day on our Facebook page here.
