Best Health School provides free education and early detection options for Central Brooklyn
residents all year round. On Saturday, June 30th 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.
"It is very important to provide the opportunity for community residents
to learn CPR," says Enid Dillard, Director of Marketing & Public
Affairs. " We are grateful that our Director of Respiratory Care,
Carren Samuels continues to provide this service personally as her way
of giving back to the community. We encourage our residents to take advantage
of this training - it's worth it!"
The CPR training is free, however, the cerfication card is processed by
the American Heart Association and costs $25.00, which participants should
bring with them. Participants can take the training without recieving
a card if desired.
