Join your colleagues by sending Washington a strong message – “Protect rural health care.” Below are some sample posts and messages to get you started! Use these messages on your organization’s facebook or twitter page and tag your member of Congress, @AHAadvocacy, and use the tag #RuralHealth with the message. Another great idea is to take a photo of your Congressional meeting and tweet that photo while adding the member of Congress to the tweet and thanking them for meeting.
