CPR course geared to adults
February is the month when Americans commemorate romantic matters of the heart with St. Valentine's Day. In honor of this month, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, in conjunction with the American Heart Association, will hold an adult CPR course Tuesday, Feb. 1, beginning at 10 a.m.
The course will include instruction by American Heart Association certified CPR instructors. The cost is $5 per person.
Coronary heart disease is the No. 1 killer of American females. Stroke is the No. 3 killer and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability.
Most American women do not recognize cardiovascular disease as a leading health problem and cause of death. As a result, having a heart attack or stroke isn't top on the list of health problems they want to worry about.
Pre-registration for this course is required. To obtain additional information or to register, contact the hospital at 629-6611, ext. 2505.
