The Cambria Community Healthcare District is expanding its  community outreach efforts, trustee Kristi Jenkins says.

District representatives appeared last month at the Cambria Farmers Market at a booth promoting February as "Go Red for Women" heart health month.

Among the concepts on the outreach list: a Facebook page and updated website, special community events (even a barbecue, maybe!), hands-only CPR classes for students at all Cambria schools, a May EMS Week (emergency medical services), fall-prevention classes, enhanced distribution of the easily accessible Vial of Life listing of crucial medical information, and meeting with community groups to explain the district’s mission.
