  • View the inside of a carotid artery through an actual ultrasound
  • Receive a “hands on” and “up front” experience that will give them a life long appreciation of the physiology of some of our body’s most critical organs.

It is our goal to:

  • Provide a free program that educates students regarding the real life dangers of smoking and heart disease.
  • Motivate students to make choices that will positively impact their health and well-being.
  • Expose them to the variety of career opportunities in the health care field.

This program is sure to get your students’ attention and keep them talking for weeks to come! Best of all, Healthy Hearts 101 is free to all those who attend.
