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.
Improving Nutrition Security
1 in 10 people in America are not getting enough food or nutrients they need. COVID-19 has amplified this need by making it harder for many to afford or access healthy foods.
Some people living in disproportionately affected communities may live in areas without convenient access to a grocery store or have to take multiple buses to go to the nearest grocery store. This makes eating healthy extremely inconvenient, if not impossible.
Suzie Hernandez Mendoza
“I was supermom, but stress can do it to you.”
At 34 years old, Suzie Hernandez-Mendoza suffered two heart attacks only days apart. Had her 4-year-old son not known how to call 911, she might not have survived the second one.
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.
Check. Change. Control
In Northwest Ohio, nearly 250,000 adults have high blood pressure – that’s nearly the entire population of the city of Toledo. Prevention and early intervention can make a big difference, as someone with hypertension at age 30 is nearly 20 percent more likely to develop heart disease or stroke.
Our legislative and regulatory priorities help to mitigate risk factors and protect survivors in communities across the country. We advocate for federal, state and local policies that help Americans build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
