CPR AND AED AWARENESS   Presented by Bill Fitzpatrick, RN

With a half-million cardiac arrests each year, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can help save a life if a person’s breathing or heart stops. Why Is CPR Important? Keeping the blood flow active - even partially – extends the opportunity for a successful resuscitation once trained medical staff arrive on site. Bill Fitzpatrick is donating time to teaching others how to save a life using CPR and AED. Bill is an RN, and currently teaches EMT and Pharmacology at LBCC. He is an AHA CPR instructor and has taught many classes both for certification and for general knowledge such as this being offered for OLLI.

Re-living the Civil Rights Movement       presented by Naida Tushnet

Naida Tushnet returned from a week-long tour of sites important in the Civil Rights movement. She found it a profoundly moving experience.
During the tour, she visited the home of Medgar Evers; the courthouse where Emmett Till’s murderers were tried; and met with key activists from the period,
including Hezekiah Watkins (the youngest person arrested for participating in the Freedom Rides), Elizabeth Eckford, one of the Little Rock seven who integrated Central High School, a survivor of the Birmingham church bombing,
and the family of a key advisor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The trip also included visits to a number of museums and monuments dedicated
to Civil Rights history and leaders.  She will share the important
lessons learned from this deep exploration of US history.
