DASAT Chair Deanna Sellers recently announced three DASAT seminars to be offered at Campvention 2013. She also said that the American Red Cross will be on-site for a “Heart of the Heartland” blood drive.
If you are interested in donating blood, please e-mail Rob Baker, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402-639-4837 (and leave a message if there is no answer); your contact will help gauge the level of interest, to ensure appropriate equipment and number of Red Cross staff.
The three DASAT seminars are:
Common Household Poisons: Have you ever wondered “can THAT really hurt me?” Most of us can find numerous common household items throughout our homes that are poisonous and/or potentially fatal. Learn which ones are truly dangerous — and which are the ones you had no idea could hurt you.
Healthcare Directives: Communicate with your loved ones now — before you become ill. If someone else is making decisions for you because of an illness, make sure they know what you would want them to do during that stressful time. Loved ones want to do what is best for you, and the best way to do that is for you to tell them now. We will discuss health care directives, explain the terminology, and give you an opportunity to complete a form.
Medication Amazement: This seminar is designed to demystify your medication list. You will learn the basic categories of medications, and discuss some drug interactions. You will also learn how to create an emergency health information list to carry in your purse or wallet. Time will be available for questions and answers at the conclusion of the presentation.
