Students Frankfort AHA advocy dayDr. John Ferguson and three P-12 Physical Education & Health teacher education students in the EKU Exercise & Sport Science Department participated in the American Heart Advocacy Day in Frankfort, KY on February 14, 2017.  The students (Connie Elkin, Vince Swope, and Sara Rucker) met with Representative C. Wesley Morgan and Senator Jared Carpenter in support of Senate Bill 89 and Senate Bill 78 as well as House Bill 247.  These bills deal with smoking cessation programs and tobacco free schools.  The American Heart Association partners with schools throughout Kentucky in support of cardiovascular health activities and this experience was quite beneficial for our students from EKU!
