Kingsbrook Offers CPR Training on Saturday, August 25


Kingsbrook's Best Health School provides free education and early detection options for Central Brooklyn residents all year round. On Saturday, August 25th, CPR training will take place on our main campus at 585 Schenectady Avenue between Winthrop Street & Rutland Road in the Lillian Minkin Ballroom.

The mission of the Best Health School is to provide better access to wellness information and screenings to promote healthier communities in the borough of Brooklyn. As such, the Best Health School's education programs are integral part of Kingsbrook’s effort to improve access to quality care and education efforts. CPR (or cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breathing (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation). If someone isn't circulating blood or breathing adequately, CPR can restore circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the brain.

Instruction is free but $25 is required on attendance for certifcation processing by the American Heart Association. For more information please call Kingsbrook's Community Information Line at 718-604-5062.
