AHA Day at the Capitol a Success!

by Pamela M. on Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Advocates from around the state descended upon Lincoln earlier this month to raise awareness for heart disease and stroke, and to advocate for a number of important issues.  Advocates participated in an advocacy briefing before walking to the Capitol and meeting with their state senators.  Senator Smith stepped off the floor of the senate to visit with advocates about his support for LB 225, a bill that would ensure all newborn babies are screened for critical congential heart defects before leaving the hospital.  The visit to the capitol concluded with a photo in the capitol rotunda.
