Kinnie Douglas Goes the Extra Mile

by Erin H. on Thursday, May 9, 2013

Proactive. That's Kinnie Douglas. As the Program Coordinator for Community Health Education at Nacohdoches Memorial Hospital in Texas, she knows the importance of public health and advocacy- and has become a champion for advancing You're the Cure priorities.

In addition to responding to calls to action and serving on the TX State Advocacy Committee, Kinnie always reaches out to her AHA Advocacy staff partner when she is going to be in Austin, the state capital, to ask what she can do to help. In fact, in January, she made the rounds in the state legislature to introduce herself to new state representatives and share important information about AHA's priority legislative issues, including CPR in schools, pulse oximetry screening for newborns, and Smoke-Free Texas. She came prepared with stories and data from her hometown to help make the case.

Thank you, Kinnie, for your commitment to You're the Cure
