UPCOMING COLUMBUS EVENTS:
The next meeting of the Franklinton Health, Safety and Crime Prevention Campaign will take place on Thursday, July 20th at 6:00pm at the Dodge Recreation Center. This special meeting will cover a very critical component of the survey we originally presented to you in November.
Franklinton has the lowest bystander CPR rate in the City, and we want to change that. You may remember that at one of our earlier meetings, Lynn White, from the OSU Medical Center gave a short demonstration of the "CPR Anytime" kit. OSU Medical Center applied for, and received a grant to conduct intensive CPR training in Franklinton. On July 20th, we are all going to have a chance to change the statistics. Please bring a friend, a family member or both and join us for this lifesaving training opportunity. Do you have 22 minutes to learn how to save a life??
Please RSVP by email or by phone at 645-8573. Also, please print the attached flier and post it wherever you can. We look forward to seeing you on July 20th.

Symposia are sessions in which a group of presenters share their views about a common topic. The format will consist of an introduction to the topic by the program chair that provides a background for the discussion. The presenters will then outline their viewpoints.

Each symposium will be 90 minutes in length.
