Dear [title] [last name],

RE: Healthy Cardiac Monitoring Act

I am reaching out to you to introduce the Healthy Cardiac Monitoring Act (HCM Act), which is proposed legislation to help identify families at risk from undiagnosed cardiac disease.

The total population estimated to be impacted by at least one of the 10 most common cardiac diseases in the United States ranges between 3.5 million – 10.5 million people. Each year thousands of people suffer from undiagnosed cardiac conditions with symptoms that range from mild to catastrophic including sudden cardiac arrest and death.

The Health Cardiac Monitoring Act will:

  • Include cardiac questions to be added to the “Well Child” examination for all children under the age of 19.

  • Improve professional development for healthcare providers with an online training system.

  • Improve student-athlete pre-participation physicals and athlete education about signs and symptoms that are linked to cardiac conditions.

  • Improve the ability of the healthcare providers to identify children and families at risk for cardiac disorders both genetic and congenital.

I am a constituent looking for bill sponsors and co-sponsors in my state to champion the HCM Act through passage into law. I would like to schedule an appointment so that we might speak with you, or a member of your staff, to provide details, and answer any questions as we discuss this important piece of proposed legislation. To schedule an appointment at a time that is convenient for you, click the following link (or copy and paste it to your browser):  https://calendly.com/julie-608/hcma-legislative-briefing.  You may also call us at (973)983-7429 to schedule an appointment.

New Jersey has already passed similar legislation and it has helped to identify children and families at risk, providing them an opportunity to seek treatment...which has proven to be life-saving.
