Healthy hearts – Millsap citizen’s focus this month

By SHARRON HUDSON

Hope you all had a memorable Valentines Day and are working on good heart health.

As February is National Heart Health Month, the Millsap Elementary students recently participated in their Annual Jump Rope for Heart-Athon.

This event has been a part of the elementary physical education program for around 20 years and teacher Mike Humphrey is diligent about keeping the tradition going. It is sponsored by the American Heart Association, which encourages good habits that are key for good health.

A local organization that has a program to support heart help is Millsap Volunteer Fire Department. As is periodically mentioned, the department offers American Heart Association CPR classes free of charge. They will endeavor to fit a class into any schedule for anyone interested. For more information, email millsapvfd@embarqmail.com or call Mark Anderson at (940) 452-2467.

Lastly, although most are aware of the signs of heart attack it never hurts to review. They are listed by the AHA as:

• Chest discomfort.

• Discomfort in one or both arms, the neck, the back, jaw or stomach.

• Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort.

• Breaking out in a cold sweat.

• Nausea, vomiting or light headedness. 

Hope this info encourages or helps someone.

With more about health, a reminder that the Millsap School Health Advisory Council will host the Third Annual Millsap Community Health Fair at Millsap High School on Feb. 21, 5:30-8 p.m., and it’s free.

There will be a myriad of booths set up and health screenings and flu shots will be available. MSHAC plans to have dentists, chiropractors, optometrists and other health-care providers on site.

You can also eat dinner there as the MHS junior class is sponsoring a baked-potato supper, with a cost of $6 for adults and $4 for kids 9 and under.

There will be door prizes and a theme basket raffle at the fair, so why not plan to take advantage of something that could be very beneficial and fun?
