Share Your Story: Joe Debbs

by Whitney C. on Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Joe Debbs, California

I have been an AHA volunteer for over ten years. I am passionate about promoting heart disease and stroke awareness across all ethnicities and I strongly advocate for equal access to affordable health care. As a former Board Chair of the Sacramento Division, I was a spokesperson for the AHA in the Yes on Prop. 29 campaign. Earlier this year, I joined members of the Legislative Women’s Caucus and AHA staff on the Assembly Floor to accept the California State Resolution declaring February as American Heart Month on Thursday, February 2nd. We encouraged legislators and their staff to honor Wear Red Day and attend the annual Capitol Goes Red event for blood pressure screenings and CPR demonstrations.
