Last week, CPR Ready teamed up with Esperanza Health Center and the Mobile CPR Project to successfully train over 40 members of the Latino community of North Philadelphia. On Tuesday, March 20, participants of Esperanza’s Seniors Program had the opportunity to learn hands-only CPR in both English and Spanish with the help of HCIF’s intern, Carmen Rosa-Rodriguez. Then, on Monday, March 26, Esperanza’s Community Health Promoters were trained in hands-only CPR and AED use as part of their class on cardiovascular health. The Health Promoters also received CPR Anytime kits donated by the American Heart Association. These kits will allow the Health Promoters to teach hands-only CPR to their families and other members of their community.
Esperanza Health Center is a faith-based health center that provides holistic, high-quality and affordable healthcare to the Latino and underserved communities of North Philadelphia. Their Community Health & Wellness Department is committed to promoting the community’s health and well-being.
