Local Events

Join the fight to end heart disease and stroke by attending a Columbus event!

STEM Goes Red

Central Ohio’s inaugural STEM Goes Red event was held in December 2019 and female students from Columbus City Schools joined us for a day of science, technology, engineering and math. 

Students Practicing CPR

CPR & First Aid Training

Emergencies leave us feeling helpless, but they don’t have to. Take two minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR™ now. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. When a person has a cardiac arrest, immediate CPR can double or triple their chance of survival. Prepare to save a life, find a CPR course near you today.

E-cigarettes and Vaping

Vaping is becoming an increasing epidemic among teens. Between 2017-2019, e-cigarette use more than doubled among middle and high school students. We are leading the way in urging regulation of these devices, the liquids in them and ensuring they stay out of the hands of our children.

Making an Impact

Your zip code can go a long way toward determining how long you might live – in Franklin County there is a 20-year gap in life expectancy between some neighborhoods. We are focused on improving the health of the Central Ohio community by fighting back against health threats, speaking up for those with no voice, and fighting for health equity.

Hypertension

We are working with federally qualified, local health clinics to reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes by improving high blood pressure and cholesterol control rates for populations most at risk. As the lead agency of the Franklin County Hypertension Network, we host community conversations with advocates, hospital and private practice representatives, like-minded nonprofit organizations, physicians and nurses.
