Lifesaving Knowledge topic May 20

Sunday Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare will host a Senior Sunday: Lunch and Learn Lecture. The topic is "Learn and Share Lifesaving Knowledge" and will be presented by David Ronan, Simulation Lab coordinator for FSLH.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 6244663. A hot lunch will be served followed by the presentation. A donation of $5 per person "would be appreciated to supplement the cost of the luncheon," organizers said.

The lecture will be held at noon in the Soggs Room at St. Luke’s Home, 1650 Champlin Ave., Utica.

This presentation is an all-in-one training session that will teach basic lifesaving skills such as adult and child choking relief, general Automated External Defibrillator (AED) awareness and will provide information to recognize the signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke.

Ronan has been an EMT for the past 16 years and a CPR instructor for the past 18 years. Along with CPR instruction, he also teaches several levels of advanced cardiac life support programs for the American Heart Association nationally and internationally.
