This week the American Heart Association organized their annual Lobby Day on Capitol Hill. Marilyn Davidson, AHA Gov. Relations Dir., and Kelli Lynch, AHA volunteer, traveled to DC to meet with members of the Oklahoma delegation. Their focus during these meetings was to encourage the members to support increased funding for the NIH and CDC, as well as ask for thier support for quality health care reform.
They were joined by 600 other advocates from around the state. The women visited with members of Sen. Tom Coburn and Rep. Mary Fallin's staff, but got to speak personally with Senator Jim Inhofe.
