This Valentine's Day, share love and save a heart

February is just around the corner ... that time of year when matters of the heart receive special attention. And that's exactly what's happening at Midland College's Health Science CE ... on Valentine's Day, no less.

The "Heartsaver" first-aid course (# HT01132Q) provides instruction in critical skills to respond and manage an emergency situation. Students learn first aid basics such as how to treat bleeding, broken bones, sprains, shock, and other medical and environmental emergencies including usage of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

The course will be offered Friday, February 14 at the F. Marie Hall SimLife Center, on the MC main campus, 3600 N. Garfield Street.

Upon completion, students will receive a Heartsaver First Aid Course Card (valid for two years) and a CPR Card (valid for two years) by American Heart Association.

Health Sciences Continuing Education is a multi-faceted program offering educational courses with clinical experiences for entry-level health careers such as certified nurses aide, phlebotomy, and other professional health careers such as certified massage therapy. Health Sciences CE also provides continuing education programs for others who have an interest in health related topics such as First Aid/CPR and HeartSaver courses.
