Let’s take a look at some of the activities that SHF has planned for National Heart Week/World Heart Day 2011!


Launch of the ‘Heart4Life’ Mobile Application for iPhone/Android

To create awareness on the importance of learning CPR+AED skills, SHF will be launching the ‘Heart4Life’ mobile application (app) for iPhone and Android phones. Sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim, the app will be able to show users how to administer step-by-step CPR. In case of an emergency, we hope that this app will help to save a life.

The mobile app will also list where Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) can be found in Singapore and assess your heart risk. Look forward to heart healthy recipes, health tips, and more!


Smoking Cessation Corner

Smoking is one of the risk factors that leads to cardiovascular disease. Smokers face approximately thrice the risk of having heart attacks than non-smokers. They are also more than twice as likely to meet with sudden cardiac death.

If you are a smoker, or know someone who smokes, then visit our SHF smoking cessation corner where we will counsel smokers on the dangers of cigarettes, the ways to cut down on smoking and eventually quit the habit. This is in line with Health Promotion Board’s “I Quit” movement under the National Smoking Control Campaign (NSCC).


Healthy Diet

Join us at our Nutrition Corner as we feature cooking demonstrations, and provide nutritional information to help you make healthier choices. You may also sign up for our educational supermarket tours, where our nutritionist will teach you how to make better food choices at the supermarket and how to read labels for their true meaning.
