Working with Florida Heart Research Institute has been an eye opener. there are so many ways to service the community and make a difference. In the true spirit of American enterprise, they combine business with pleasure. Events destined to raise funds, not only engage donors in pleasurable activities but raise their awareness and enables them to participate hands in activities that will improve health conditions in the community.
One of the most noteworthy events: Heart of A Chef is directed to children and their families. Through fun and play they tackle the very serious subject of heart health, nutrition and empowers all participants to take control of their lives.

Our local EMS providers have truly appreciated the help volunteered by the Miami (Florida) Heart Research Institute in partnering with the fire departments on community health screenings, on developing a tracking system for cardiac arrest outcomes with local hospitals, and on providing the public with education on doing Chest Compression Only CPR for victims of cardiac arrest. Fire Rescue has worked very hard to provide the absolute best, latest and greatest treatments for sudden cardiac arrest to save as many victims as possible. The missing piece of the chain of survival in Miami, however, is the public, because our paramedics rarely find the public doing CPR: It is absolutely critical that anyone who witnesses a cardiac arrest knows to call 911 and to start chest compressions right away (no mouth-to-mouth breaths needed) to save a life! "Push Hard, Push Fast, JUST DO IT!" is the critical message to all.

My life has been touched by the great work of the Florida Heart Research Institute in two profound ways.

As a former health reporter for 24 years in Florida and now as a professional fundraiser, I have worked with the Florida Heart Research Institute in putting on important events
that generate funding for their mission, which involves saving lives by finding new treatments and cures for heart disease, educating people on how to be heart healthy, and providing screenings and clinical trials that both catch problems and offer patients new hope beyond current standard treatments. Having worked with hundreds of organizations, I can tell you Florida Heart Research Institute stands out among the best of the best.

Furthermore, on a personal note, when my mother was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, her physician pulled me aside to tell me it was a deadly diagnosis. Back then, in the early 90’s, people with congestive heart failure had a 100 percent chance of dying within four years. And they faced a slow, debilitating demise. But thanks to the discoveries made by researchers at the Florida Heart Research Institute along with their colleagues, my mother lived a full, quite robust life for another ten years! Yes, the last 6 months were somewhat difficult, but when you are 96, that might be expected! Because of the findings and new treatments brought about through the clinical trials of Florida Heart Research Institute, just when the positive effect of a certain drug or treatment was wearing thin, her doctor was able to offer my mother a new drug that would revive her and give her quality of life for extended periods. I am forever grateful for the innovations the Florida Heart Research Institute has helped to bring about for patients just like my mother. I heartily endorse their foundation and the work they do to save and improve the quality of our lives.

Florida Heart Research Institute has been instrumental in many initiatives put forth by Miami-Dade County Government. Their partnering in some of our activities has been invaluable because they not only bring great expertise to areas of prevention but also bring a great deal of networking opportunities free of charge.

My participation occured as a volunteer and as a representative for the schools culinary arts programs. The Heart Research Institute provided a great opportunity for students to participate in their Heart of a Chef event. Top culinary students from two high schools in our student organization, Family, Career & Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) were able to compete in an "Iron Chef" competition, preparing a heart healthy meal that was judged and a winner received a prize. We also provided an opportunity for middle school students to display fruit and vegetable carvings, of which a winner received a prize. This brought many families to the event to learn about heart healthy food preparation and heart healthy eating habits.
