On February 24 2015, we had a wonderful time participating in the 14th Annual Community Service Fair at Emerald Ridge High School! This event was designed to assist students in gaining firsthand information about local community service opportunities. We are pleased to say that many of the students were already informed about the fact that Heart Disease is the #1 killer of Americans. We would like to thank teachers and the families of these students for educating our nation’s youth about the dangers of poor health.
We are hopeful that these enthusiastic and promising young students will take the knowledge that they have learned about the risks of cardiovascular disease and use that information to contribute to a healthier society. It will make a significant change in our country for the better when younger generations realize the importance of healthy lifestyle choices now and share their awareness with friends and family as they continue to grow into health-conscious adults.
We appreciate everyone who attended this event and heavily encourage additional High Schools to establish community service curriculum and opportunities for their students.
