Cannon Grange presents cardiac health program

As part of its continuing series of public programs dedicated to healthy living, Cannon Grange will present Nancy Capelle speaking about cardiac health on March 5 at 7 p.m.  Mrs. Capelle’s talk will focus on her own experience of surviving both a heart attack and cardiac arrest shortly after her 40th birthday, and the motivation required to make essential lifestyle changes to reduce the chances of developing heart disease.
During the program Ms. Capelle will speak about how to:

  • Recognize a cardiac emergency,

  • Respond to a cardiac emergency,

  • Understand the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest,

  • Perform “Hands-Only CPR,”

  • Operate an automated external defibrillator (AED),

  • Manage personal risk factors that will reduce the chances of developing heart disease.

The talk will be an interactive seminar with ample opportunity for questions and answers and sharing of anecdotes. Ms. Capelle is a certified EMT who volunteers with Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and is also a certified Instructor in CPR and use of the AED.
Students and adults are welcome to this free event.
Parking is available at the Grange Hall, 25 Cannon Road, and across the road at the Cannondale train station.
