Progress in Policy!

The American Heart Association has launched a new interactive online report highlighting major federal, state and local policy victories for FY ’09 – ’10. Progress in Policy outlines advances in legislative and regulatory issues that benefit heart disease and stroke patients and their loved ones – health reform, research and prevention funding, tobacco control, emergency cardiac care and stroke systems of care.

The articles, videos and photos in this interactive report provide an insider’s view of the remarkable work of our You’re the Cure advocates, volunteers and staff including those who met with lawmakers, testified at state capitol and congressional hearings and responded to alerts and calls to action with thousands of calls and emails to their representatives. Thanks to their tireless efforts, we have moved closer to our goal of improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% and reducing death from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20% by the year 2020.
