May 2021 EHAC Updates

Ready to Re-Start Your Community Education?

Update for May 2021

If you are unable to participate in the hospital-branded community education, the new generic EHAC community course is available and you can share it by using this link.

Now that events and health fairs are returning, are you ready to share EHAC with your community? Who is your audience? Over Mother's Day weekend, EHAC was proud to be the title sponsor of The Florida Hummingbird, a 2021 PDGA Women's Global Event. The PDGA Women's Global Event was supposed to be held in 2020, but, due to COVID, was re-scheduled to this year. Over 3300 women from 30 countries compete in their local event and are then ranked against their counterparts around the world.

The local event that EHAC sponsored had 108 women and junior players and a lot of caddies and event volunteers. EHAC distributed a total of 227 pledge cards, brochures, bookmarks, bubbles and heart stress balls. In addition, EHAC exhibited how to use a blood pressure cuff and an AED trainer. This event was the perfect opportunity to help women understand how to create better heart health in addition to introducing EHAC to a new audience.

EHAC Covid Training

Training Your Hospitals During COVID -

As hospitals are re-starting their summer educational series and training new employees, there are new constraints while following CDC and local guidelines. We'd like to thank Nancy G. and Rocky G. at UF Health Leesburg and The Villages for submitting their educational outreach updates. For UF Health, during their Stroke Awareness events, they distributed the EHAC brochures, pledge cards, bookmarks and the new EHAC Kids Deputy Hearty materials. In addition, during their recent new employee training, Nancy created EHAC welcome kits that included these materials enclosed in a plastic gift bag. During these events, everyone wore masks and there was plenty of hand sanitizer.

Don't forget - we will add your hospital logo to the front of the EHAC brochures in both English and Spanish. This is a free service, but you will have to submit your logo. Please ask your marketing team for a high resolution jpg or an .eps file format. If you have any questions, please contact us. If you need to purchase EHAC materials, please visit our online store.
