Acceptance is a valuable word used to recognize individuals with autism in April.
What this means is that together, we accept and value neurodiversity. By choosing to embrace individuals with autism the way they are, with unique challenges and gifts, we can make the world a safer and more inclusive place for all. 
This month, we challenge people to find ways to advocate for the autism community. They deserve friends, colleagues and family members that stick up for them in difficult situations, seek out resources in everyday lives, and challenge lawmakers to make their lives more conducive to their needs. Consider finding ways to support autism research, such as through fundraisers or by attending events.


Be A Heart Hero - Know Hands Only CPR

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The term “heart disease” refers to several types of heart conditions. In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to heart attack. You can greatly reduce your risk for heart disease through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medicine.


What are the symptoms of heart disease?

What are the risk factors for heart disease?

Sometimes heart disease may be “silent” and not diagnosed until a person experiences signs or symptoms of a heart attack, heart failure, or an arrhythmia. When these events happen, symptoms may include1

Heart attack: Chest pain or discomfort, upper back or neck pain, indigestion, heartburn, nausea or vomiting, extreme fatigue, upper body discomfort, dizziness, and shortness of breath.

Arrhythmia: Fluttering feelings in the chest (palpitations).

Heart failure: Shortness of breath, fatigue, or swelling of the feet, ankles, legs, abdomen, or neck veins.
