Over the course of the last few months, the Idaho Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Public Education Subcommittee developed messaging about the signs and symptoms of heart attack and importance of calling 911 immediately. In December 2010, the Eagle Public Library piloted a display of the materials for the Subcommittee. The display was well received. See photo above.
