In Touch with You Blog
For years during Heart month we have talked about how we have the power to prevent heart disease and stroke by knowing the importance of eating well and exercising, managing blood pressure and cholesterol, and smoking cessation.
We also have the power to ACT in the event of an emergency.
This year, as we celebrate Heart month, we are drawing attention to our important partnership with the Emergency Department and Emergency Medical Service providers in our region and what you can do in the event of a cardiovascular emergency.
YOU play a significant role in an emergency…Be prepared!
You can also become CPR certified and encourage your family members, coaches and teachers to take action and become certified to save a life! The American Heart Association is now advocating for “Sidewalk CPR” which no longer requires mouth to mouth breathing. Learn more about it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSUC0wTFAjU.
