KINGSBROOK'S BEST HEALTH SCHOOL PROVIDES FREE CPR TRAINING FOR THE COMMUNITY

Saturday, October 26th in the Lillian Minkin Ballroom

Brooklyn, NY-- Kingsbrook's Best Health School provides free education and early detection options for Central Brooklyn residents all year round. On Saturday, October 26th from 11:00-2:00pm 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.

While the training is free and provided by Kingsbrook's Director of Respiratory Services, the Certfication/Card fee is $25.00 and goes towards processing with the American Heart Association.

The Best Health School also provides education on stroke awareness and a myriad of chronic health conditions. For more information on our educational schedule for 2017, visit our website at www.kingsbrook.org under Community Programs & Events or call 718-604-5062.
