Volunteers Visit with Senator Lincoln on Healthcare Reform

Volunteers Amber and Diana Boulton and Wonder Lowe visited with Senator Blanche Lincoln on Wednesday, August 12th. The visit was conducted during the August Congressional Recess. They were delivering the American Heart Association's message on health care reform which includes the following priorities:

  • Avalibility - healthcare for everyone

  • Affordable - healthcare regardless of age, gender or any other factors

  • Adequate - healthcare for all Americans regardless of prior health problems

  • Understandable - provide better, more easily understandable information about their heatlh insurance benefits, cost and quality.

Senator Lincoln was also presented thank you messages from volunteers across the state. The messages were from participants of the Association's Go Red For Women movement that is designed to impower women to take control of their heart health. Lincoln is a co-sponsor of a federal piece of legislation the HEART for Women Act that will provide screening and educational components for women of all socio-economic populations. The bill is on the current Congressional agenda.
