The Irish International Immigrant Center (IIIC) held a successful Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification workshop on November 4 in Quincy. The workshop took place as part of the IIIC’s series of workshops aimed at those who are working or hoping to work as Home Health Aides. The workshops are open to all and the CPR class last week was widely attended. Previous workshops have covered topics such as nutrition for elderly persons, stress management techniques, and suicide prevention techniques. In addition to providing valuable and useful information, the workshops have proved to be very enjoyable social evenings for members of the Irish community in Boston.

The CPR class taught resuscitation and basic life saving techniques for adults, children and infants and all of the trainees are now formally CPR certified. The IIIC will be continuing to host the Home Health Aide workshop series early in the coming year.
