Tonight, the President will address Congress and the American people with his State of the Union address- and we want to invite you to watch along with the AHA and join us for a real-time, online chat! While we know it is likely that the President will focus on the nation's struggling economy, the American Heart Association will also be listening closely for mentions of the issues facing our nation's health- many of which you have been actively advocating for on behalf of heart disease and stroke patients and those at risk. So tune-in and log-on! Participating is easy!
1)Become a fan of the AHA's You're the Cure network on Facebook (if you aren't already!)
2) At 9:00 pm EST, visit the You're the Cure fan page and tune into the speech on TV.
3) Join in the conversation as the AHA posts throughout the speech. You could even win someprizes for taking part!
The State of the Union is a chance for the President to review the accomplishments of the past year and to set the stage for the year to come- so as informed health advocates, it is important that we all tune-in. And by being part of the AHA's online chat, you can not only watch the speech, but be part of the discussion.
Before you join the chat, make sure you watch the latest advocacy video from the American Heart Association that features one of our SCA volunteers, Dave Bess of New Mexico. See you on the You're the Cure Facebook fan page tonight!
