AHA Awarded NIHE National Training Center status in 2016!!
Previously, mentioned in this publication was the exciting news that NIHE is now a National Training Center operating in all 50 states. We did not ask AHA for this honor and privilege and so are extremely grateful for being awarded this high distinction. We have prayed and planned for ways to expand into geographic areas where we are not currently operating. We wanted to maintain our high standards for exceeding all AHA quality assurance requirements in all areas that NIHE and NIHE Training Sites operate and still maintain our top notch customer support.

Referral Coupon $50 off your next NIHE course booked on our website: www.nationalhearted.com Unlike most other AHA Training Centers that we have come across NIHE encourages all qualified Instructors and Training Sites to expand from just BLS and add ACLS and PALS. We teach you how to market and tell you what has worked for us and also, what doesn’t work. Our compensation growth is based upon our Training Sites growing. If you don’t grow we don’t grow. We try to break even on our affiliation fees (basically they cover the administrative and quality assurance costs mandated by AHA for Training Sites and Instructors) We make our profit on the student fees, so the more students you train the more we as a Training Center make and the more you make. We think this is the MOST FAIR Training Center—Training Site business plan out there. It is truly Win Win for both the Training Center (NIHE) and you the Training Site. If you know of any good educators out there that are looking for a WIN Win Training Site Agreement please let them know about NIHE and have them contact us at nihe@earthlink.net Be sure to tell us you referred them and you will get a FREE coupon good for $50 off your next NIHE course booked on our website www.nationalhearted.com

Starting this month we are rolling out our national expansion plan. The first areas we will be opening in are Orlando, FL; Phoenix, AZ; and Waco, TX.

We will be offering BLS, ACLS, and PALS Instructor courses and Training Site Orientation and Training in Orlando, FL Jan. 31-Feb. 3, 2017.

We will be offering BLS, ACLS, and PALS Instructor Training and Training Site Orientation and Training in Phoenix, AZ from February 17, 2017 to February 24, 2017.
We will be offering BLS, ACLS, and PALS Instructor Training and Training Site Orientation and Training in Waco, TX from March 15, 2017 to March 21, 2017.

If you know anyone who wants to start their own AHA training site please have them check out our Training Site page on our website: www.nationalhearted.com
Also, Dr. Stonebraker’s new book will be published on Amazon in both hardcopy and e-book format later this month. The title is: “How to Start a Safety Training Business” by our Program Director, Linnea Stonebraker RN, PhD.

CPR Saves a Life—This Stuff Really Works!

If you think that CPR is a waste of time and energy please read the article below.

Teen Being Hailed As Hero
Andrew Wilson of Streamwood, Illinois, just 16 years old, is being hailed as a hero for saving the life of a young girl using a skill he thought he would never have to use: CPR. Wilson is a member of his local police department’s “Explorer Program for Youth”. Part of that program is taking CPR classes.
Last week, Andrew was in Peoria, a town about 3 hours south of Chicago with his teammates for an annual chess tournament attended by many schools in Illinois. The team was having dinner in the lobby of their hotel when they suddenly heard many people yelling and screaming for help. The sounds were coming from the pool.
A seven-year-old girl was having a seizure, and her grandfather was desperately trying to find someone who knew CPR. “I was surprised that what I was doing was working because I never did it in real life,” Wilson said.
Andrew sprang into action. He started giving breaths and compressions. After about 40 compressions, the girl regained consciousness and began to breathe. “I was surprised that what I was doing was working because I never did it in real life,” Andrew said of the incident. He immediately called his father, Office Greg Wilson, to tell him what had just happened. Greg is obviously very over the moon that his son had saved someone’s life.
“I was very proud and was just trying to reassure him that what he did was awesome and great and it worked out,” he said.
Andrew Wilson hopes to follow his father’s footsteps to a career in law enforcement.

This month’s recipe:

Cold wet weather is all over the country this month. Comfort food is perfect in this kind of weather and Macaroni and Cheese is top notch comfort food. Traditional Macaroni and Cheese is full of animal protein, fat, and salt, all things that contribute to all of the lifestyle diseases (heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, kidney failure, hypertension etc.) that are killing Americans at an alarming rate. This recipe has none of the bad stuff but it is still scrumptious! I get asked for this receipe over and over. The simple cheese sauce can be used to make nachos, over steamed broccoli, lasagna and any other place where a great cheese sauce is needed.

Macaroni and Cheese

4 cups cooked whole wheat macaroni
2 cups Simple Cheese Sauce

Simple Cheese Sauce

1 cup raw, washed cashews
2 cups water
½ large or 1 small red bell pepper or ½ jar Trader Joe’s roasted red peppers
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon onion powder
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
Place all ingredients in blender and blend smooth (about 2-3 minutes). Then bring to a boil , stirring until thick. Use for mac & cheese, burritos, nachos, pizza, lasagna, etc.
Lite cheese option: Use only ½ cup cashew nuts plus 1 Tablespoon cornstarch.

Mix both ingredients together and bake at 350?F for 25 minutes.
