Magen David Adom (MDA) sponsored a Health Awareness Day at Bar Ilan University earlier in the month. The event was open to the general public.

Special workshops in adult resuscitation, choking in infants and children, earthquake preparedness and summer safety, including caring for drowning victims, were on the agenda. Health Awareness Day also featured a training center for adult lung rehabilitation, blood donations in an MDA bloodmobile, a “good deeds” station, stations featuring MDA’s innovative equipment, an exhibition of MDA’s advanced rescue vehicles, and a special wishing wall that will be erected on campus.

Classes were suspended for two hours (from 12-2 pm) to enable student participation.
