Wellness & Lifestyle Classes: Education plays an essential role for patients in the cardiac rehabilitation program and community members. We provide classes on lifestyle changes to benefit health and well-being. The Foundation provides the funding that allows us to provide these classes free of charge to our community members to teach skills necessary to promote a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Hands-Only CPR classes: Nearly 350,000 cardiac arrests happen outside the hospital every year. If CPR is initiated immediately, the chance of survival can double or triple. Bystander Hands-Only CPR has been proven to save lives. Because of the Foundation’s support, our “Hands-Only CPR” courses offered monthly are free to the public. The class teaches students to recognize an unconscious victim and how to perform compression’s only CPR. Classes involve a brief lecture, watching a video, and practicing on a CPR manikin.
(As of March 2020 all in-person classes have been suspended until further notice. Please check back with us Mid 2021 for a class update)
Continued Education for Healthcare Providers: In cooperation with the Centura Health Pre-Hospital Services, education is essential for our community’s health care partners. We offer online continuing education seminars four times a year to provide information on new and existing treatments and techniques in cardiovascular care.
