The City of Coral Gables and Doctors Hospital invite you to “Save Your Heart for the Ones You Love” this Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, February 14, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Plaza at 150 Miracle Mile. The Coral Gables Fire Department will be giving free 10-minute, hands-only CPR instruction and Doctors Hospital will be offering free blood pressure checks. Come learn what actions to take to save the life of a family member, friend or a loved one.
Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. If you’re a bystander, your actions can only help since CPR can more than double a person’s chance of survival.
Doctors Hospital will be onsite offering free blood pressure checks and heart health information. By living a healthy lifestyle, you can help keep your blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar normal and lower your risk for heart disease and heart attack. Heart disease is a top killer of men and women in the United States. On this February 14, we invite the public to check their hearts for the ones they love, free of charge.
