WILL YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO IN AN EMERGENCY?
What if one of your co-workers has an accident or a heart attack? What if you are jogging in the park and see someone in distress? What if you are in a restaurant and one of your family members begins to choke and cannot breath? Will you know what to do?
I participated in a CPR/First Aid class at the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce that answered many of these questions for me! What an informative and wonderful class. I learned so much! Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas provided the wonderfully trained staff that teach these classes at businesses, as well as at the hospital. Super staff, great instruction, and really – a lot of fun, too.
In America we have increasing rates of obesity, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, stroke, and cardiovascular disease — almost every chronic disease of aging. The vast majority of these chronic diseases are related to diet and exercise. And that is the main reason I entered the field of sustainability – for me it was about sustainable food systems! I was trying to care for and feed my young family “real food” in an age of “fake food” and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. I wanted to make a difference by influencing a more sustainable society.
I feel fortunate today to be working with businesses and community leaders who have the power to influence our future in a more positive, healthful, and sustainable way. Scripps Memorial Hospital Encintas is a wonderful example of that influence. Earlier this year the hospital embarked on a major facility-wide “Green Initiative”. The goal of an inspired leadership was to make a connection between human health and the environment, and to be an example and a leader for their community.
I feel fortunate to be working with them on this plan; and confident that they will have a great influence on the community and the region in their sustainability efforts. Human health and the environment are intricately linked.
If you want to make sure that someone around you will know what to do in an emergency, or if you want to ensure the health and safety of your loved ones, I encourage you to call 760-633-6791 or email ENCWellBeing@Scrippshealth.org to schedule a class for your business, or your family & friends, and tailored to your specific needs! Awesome, fun, and all about your health, safety, and sustainability!
