Welcome to You're the Cure on the Hill 2008

Hi all you You're the Cure advocates. Greetings from Washington, D.C. As one of the many staff working behind the scenes to offer You're the Cure on the Hill 2008, the American Heart Association's annual lobby day, I can't tell you how excited we all are to see so many of you in town for what is sure to be an amazing two day adventure. This year is another record breaking year with over 650 advocates in town wearing red and ready to ask our lawmakers to make heart disease and stroke programs a priority this year. I hope to meet many of you in person at our training sessions, events, and on the Hill to thank you for all you do as an advocate.

I'd encourage you to write a message on our first ever You're the Cure blog and share your thoughts on how it's going in Washington DC. It's that simple, type a message to your fellow advocates and let them know how your day is going. I'll be doing the same during our time together and ask you to join me in spreading the You're the Cure message. Have a great time, stay dry, rest, learn, and most of all enjoy your time with volunteers from across the country. All the best – Clarissa GarcĂ­a (AHA Staff)
