In celebration of Heart Month, the Internal Medicine practice at 46 Prince St. participated in a CPR/BLS re-certification course Feb. 11.

Presented by Julie O’Connell of TriBalance Health, the two-hour course drew 14 clinicians and non-clinical staff members. Participants received two-year certification. TriBalance Health is a safety and first-aid training company dedicated to providing health education for the body, mind and spirit.

“This was a great opportunity for our non-clinical staff to become educated on signs of heart attack, choking and other forms of distress, and how to administer life-saving techniques,” said Lisa Dattilo, practice supervisor. “Everyone has a better understanding of just how crucial those first few moments of a medical emergency are to someone in need and left confident in the skills they were trained on.”
