Lobby Day 2011

In March 2011, ACHA once again, joined with partner organizations The Children’s Heart Foundation and Mended Little Hearts in hosting National Congenital Heart Lobby Day in Washington, D.C.

This year’s event targeted members of the appropriations committee, with 33 advocates flown in from key districts to visit 42 legislative offices. The message continued to be urgent request for funding of the provisions outlined in the Congenital Heart Futures Act, including increased National Institutes of Health funding and $7.25 million to the CDC for CHD surveillance.
