Space available in Safe Sitter classes

July 12, 2019 (YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio) Space is still available in the three remaining Safe Sitter classes to be offered this summer through the support of Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley. Scholarships are also available for children from families who cannot pay.

Safe Sitter courses equip girls and boys entering grade six or higher with the information and skills all sitters should have: basic First Aid, rescue breathing, accident prevention, childcare tips, what to do if a child chokes, and how and when to call for help.

The daylong course will be offered at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital on July 30, and at St. Joseph Warren Hospital July 23 and Aug. 6. The class runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Cost is $30 per student. Class size is limited and registration is required. Call 330-480-3070.

For information on how to support this or other programs that improve the health of Mahoning Valley residents and ensure access to anyone in need, call Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley at 330- 729-1180.
