  • Host a breakfast on a Saturday for current and past patients with a speaker or game with prizes 
  • Potluck for previous year’s patients
  • Give talks on radio/TV spots during Heart Month
  • Presentations: CPR demonstrations, Nitro use, Health- for public, staff, patients 
  • “Did you know…” poster with stats related to rehab and heart/lungs
