“Day On The Hill is an important annual opportunity for AACVPR members and supporters to advocate our priorities to their legislators and staffs – not just as an association but as individual voters from their hometown communities. National legislative support is needed for Cardiac and Pulmonary rehab programs to become the ‘standard of care’ for patients across the country.” Korey Sixbury, LSI President.
“Currently only 20 percent of cardiac patients get a referral for rehab care – and for those who do, their quality of life is significantly improved as well as 5 year morbidity rates. We believe all cardiac patients should get these referrals as a matter of standard practice, and this is what our lobbying efforts are aimed at.”
