On Saturday 26th May, iHHub partners, the Portuguese Heart Foundation, organized a Heart Festival in Cascais, a cosmopolitan town located 30 km west of Lisbon, with about 250,000 inhabitants.
The Festival included exhibits dedicated to the promotion of healthy lifestyle choices including information on the Mediterranean diet and optimal physical activity. The Festival also held basic life support and A.E.D. demonstrations.
Mayor Carlos Cerreiras offered his support of the Acting on Heart Failure campaign by attending the event and participating in the demonstrations.
Great job to our partners in Portugal for their coordination of these efforts. To read more about this and the other events taking part throughout Europe, please visit the PHF website and Facebook page and the iHHub Facebook page.
