Heart Matters @7eventsleics Family Health & Well-Being Festival

It's child's play when it comes down to getting hands - on, as demonstrated at the Family Health & Well Being Festival in Evington, Leicester and under the expert guidance of JHMT's Community Liaison Officer and trainer Alan Harrison White.

More than 100 x people of all ages stepped up to have a go on Eric's chest ( Resusci Anne First Aid Manikin) and become familiar with how to use an AED.

Many congratulations to Jit Chauhan and his team from 7 Events - http://www.7events.org/ - for putting on of such a diverse family health orientated event for the Evington community.

Once again, 'many thanks' to JHMT's Alan Harrison White for sharing his vast knowledge and expertise to help people learn basic hands-on lifesaving skills on how to save a life.

A great result all-round with people also going going away from the event with a greater awareness and understanding on SADS - underlying Inherited heart conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac death in young people between 12 - 35 years old.
