National Wear Red Day: A “Heartwarming” Infographic

20160205_Wear.Red_.000

At Concorde Career College, our passion is preparing you to succeed in every aspect of health care, both personally and professionally. As you help others strive to be the best versions of themselves, it’s important to practice what you preach.

How about we start with a basic one: Are you regularly working in the recommended four to five daily servings of fruits and vegetables?

As we observe National American Heart Month, it’s no secret that eating fruits and vegetables is important in promoting happy, healthy hearts. They’re high in minerals, vitamins and fiber. They’re also low in calories and help you absorb nutrients from other foods.

On this National Wear Red Day, consider how you can renew your commitment to moving these fresh picks from the crisper drawer (where good intentions go to die) to a consistent part of your plate!

The American Heart Association is a national voluntary health agency to help reduce disability and death from cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Take a look at this brilliant infographic they put together for some innovative tips, tricks and tactics.

Davina Thomas-Clark | Medical Assistant, Vocational Nurse graduate

“I have taken the MA program and the LVN program. Concorde is a wonderful school. There is a difference between passion and a paycheck, and most of my instructors had a passion for what they do. The program was challenging but well worth it. I love this college!”

Kontessa Brown | Dental Assisting Graduate

“I think it’s an amazing school. When I sat down for boards, I felt more than adequately prepared. If you put the work in, your success is almost guaranteed.”

Marcus Streator | Respiratory Therapy graduate

“Without the support of certain instructors … I would not have pushed myself to grasp the concepts and pass my boards on the first attempt. Once I passed my boards, it was less than one month after that I landed my first Respiratory Therapist job where I am currently working with so much joy every day.”

Trenisha Jones | Dental Assistant Graduate

“I decided to go to school because I was tired of working dead-end jobs. … When I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I needed a better life for me, for my child, for my husband, and just to better myself.”

James Harkins | Nursing Graduate

“What I liked about Concorde was that there was nothing flashy. They were very up front, very simple, answered all my questions. They were more concerned with my education than tuition.”
