Fritz Demonstrates Heart-Saving Techniques at Elk Grove High School
Elk Grove High School of Illinois has decided to work with the American Heart Association in a terrific effort to inform and instruct the young adults and families of Elk Grove High School on heart saving information during the basketball game. The American Heart Association commemorates Go Red For Women during February, heart health awareness month, to support women with heart related diseases. Elk Grove High School asked Fritz, founder of National Health Care Provider Solutions and Disque Foundation, to reinforce heart-healthy habits and demonstrate the importance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation during the half-time show of the local basketball game.
Elk Grove High School encouraged students and staff to wear only red during the game and throughout the entire day on Friday. The students, along with millions across America participated in the “red out” to enthuse the Go Red For Women day of February 7. The American Heart Association motivated Americans everywhere to get involved in various ways such as through donations and social media. Fritz opted to locally join the movement to educate and inspire a younger audience.
Fritz and other professionals from the team were at the game inspiring the crowd with quick and easy healthy habits for a better heart. Along with the CPR demonstration, Fritz exhibited students, staff, and families with an informative demonstration about automated external defibrillator techniques.
