Coastal Care Partners is now offering Pediatric CPR Classes. According to Coastal Care Partners Pediatrician Dr. Kelsey Alexander, “It’s smart for all parents to know in emergency situations. That’s why we consider this such an incredibly important service to offer to our community.”
The Pediatric CPR classes are 30-minute classes offered once a week at 11:45AM on Thursdays at Coastal Care Partners’ office, located at 4B Skidaway Village Walk. These classes offer one-on-one instruction with Shelley Fields, who serves as MA for Coastal Care Partners’ pediatric clinic. Fields has 24 years of experience as a paramedic. Dr. Alexander notes, “These 30-minute classes are a great opportunity for parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and babysitters to learn practical tips and ask questions in a comforting environment.” These classes are not certification courses.
Pre-registration is required, and interested participants.The cost is $55 for members of Coastal Care Partners’ Pediatric and/or Adult Primary Care practices, and $65 for nonmembers.
Earlier this year, Coastal Care Partners held its first CPR and Defibrillator Class and committed to offer more classes during the year. Amy Pierce, co-owner of Coastal Care Partners, said, “We are always looking for additional ways to help serve our community. Offering additional classes, especially pediatric CPR classes, made perfect sense. Considering sports headlines as to just how important CPR is in the event of a cardiac episode, we feel it’s vital to educate the public on this life-saving skill.”
