Heart Safe Press the Chest CPR Training

Wiregrass Public Safety Center

1:00 pm to 5:00 pm


100 Public Safety Way ,

Southeast Health Foundation is leading a community-wide initiative to develop a HeartSafe Program for the region. Starting at home, the Southeast Health Foundation is partnering with the City of Dothan, the Dothan Fire Department and Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce to form an advisory committee to establish a HeartSafe program in Houston County. The goal of this partnership is the reduction of deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurring in the community.

The program focuses on four lifesaving elements, which improve survival for cardiac arrest victims:

  1. Early Identification – Promoting awareness of the signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest, to encourage bystanders to call 9-1-1 immediately.
  2. Early CPR – Increasing the number of individuals trained in Hands-only CPR, which increases the chance of effective defibrillation.
  3. Early Defibrillation – Increasing access to and awareness of automated external defibrillators (AED) throughout the community, which is a critical link for survival.
  4. EMS Intervention – Basic and advanced care provided by EMS is critical. Steps 1-3 by the public aid EMS and provide the best chance for a cardiac arrest victim’s survival.

Through the initiative, workplaces, campuses and communities in Houston County will be encouraged to become recognized as HeartSafe. To be eligible, an organization must complete an application and meet certain criteria, which includes ensuring an adequate number of individuals are trained in hands-only CPR and that automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available within a certain distance.

As a major contributor and program supporter of the HeartSafe initiative, the Dothan Fire Department will host the first in a series of hands-only CPR training classes on Saturday, April 30th at the new Wiregrass Public Safety Center. For more information about the event, please call the Southeast Health Foundation or check out our Facebook page.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

SCA is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 300,000 lives annually. Approximately 95 percent of SCA victims die before they reach a hospital or receive medical attention.

SCA generally occurs without warning. Once the SCA victim collapses, he or she has about five minutes to receive an AED shock to reset the heart’s rhythm. Without the AED shock the chance of surviving decreases by 10 percent every minute that life saving measures are not initiated (early, identification and activation, early CPR and early defibrillation).

If you are interested in becoming a HeartSafe Workplace/Campus or would like more information about HeartSafe, please contact the Southeast Health Foundation at sehealthfoundation@southeasthealth.org or call 334-673-4150.

Miracle Berry Tasting

445 N Oates St (Main Branch), Dothan, AL, United States, Alabama 36303

6:00 pm to 7:30 pm


Turn sour to sweet with just a berry! Miracle berry taste testing will include eating and drinking things that are usually tart or sour.

Synsapalum Dulcificum, or Miracle Berries, also known as Miracle Fruit, Miraculous Fruit, or lididi berries, are a healthy, natural fruit native to West Africa. Miracle berries contain an active ingredient called miraculin, which changes the taste of sour foods like lemon and lime, into sweet temporarily without adding sugar. So you can eat a lemon like an orange, drink lemon juice as if it’s lemonade (without adding ANY sugar), or have a grapefruit for breakfast without sprinkling sugar on top. The effect usually lasts between 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on the individual.

Join us on a tasting spree and rate your experience with each taste to see if these berries work for you!

The IMPACT Project is in its 4th year and is designed to provide an opportunity for performing artists to create, perform and promote their original artistic works in a safe and creative environment. It is our hope that the IMPACT Project will invite its audiences to broaden their perspectives as to what art can be and allow our performers to impact the lives of its audiences in a profound way through dance, theatre, music, poetry, movement and storytelling.

We invite all performance groups or individuals from all over the Southeast to join us. All artists who wish to participate must apply on our website, to be considered for the project. The process is simple and $15.00 to register. The application will provide the ADW Board of Directors an understanding of the nature of the work each artist wishes to perform. A video submission is recommended to understand the caliber of each artist or company’s works. The applications are considered by the meaning and description of the work as well as the concept that is being presented. Professional, collegiate, freelance artists and student groups are all invited to submit. Submissions close July 1st!

Alabama Dance Works is a 501c-3 non-profit professional dance company whose mission is to transform the lives of it’s students and audiences through high-quality dance education, performance, and community engagement. With this event, it is truly the community connection we seek to build through our inspiring performances and it is completely free to the public. Contributions will be accepted at the event.

In order to keep ADW’s commitment to education at the forefront, master workshop classes in dance and theatre arts will be offered Saturday July 27th. A detailed master class listing will be made available in July.

Heart Safe Press the Chest CPR Training

Wiregrass Public Safety Center

8:30 am to 12:00 pm


100 Public Safety Way ,

Southeast Health Foundation is leading a community-wide initiative to develop a HeartSafe Program for the region. Starting at home, the Southeast Health Foundation is partnering with the City of Dothan, the Dothan Fire Department and Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce to form an advisory committee to establish a HeartSafe program in Houston County. The goal of this partnership is the reduction of deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurring in the community.

The program focuses on four lifesaving elements, which improve survival for cardiac arrest victims:

  1. Early Identification – Promoting awareness of the signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest, to encourage bystanders to call 9-1-1 immediately.
  2. Early CPR – Increasing the number of individuals trained in Hands-only CPR, which increases the chance of effective defibrillation.
  3. Early Defibrillation – Increasing access to and awareness of automated external defibrillators (AED) throughout the community, which is a critical link for survival.
  4. EMS Intervention – Basic and advanced care provided by EMS is critical. Steps 1-3 by the public aid EMS and provide the best chance for a cardiac arrest victim’s survival.

Through the initiative, workplaces, campuses and communities in Houston County will be encouraged to become recognized as HeartSafe. To be eligible, an organization must complete an application and meet certain criteria, which includes ensuring an adequate number of individuals are trained in hands-only CPR and that automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available within a certain distance.

As a major contributor and program supporter of the HeartSafe initiative, the Dothan Fire Department will host the first in a series of hands-only CPR training classes on Saturday, April 30th at the new Wiregrass Public Safety Center. For more information about the event, please call the Southeast Health Foundation or check out our Facebook page.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

SCA is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 300,000 lives annually. Approximately 95 percent of SCA victims die before they reach a hospital or receive medical attention.

SCA generally occurs without warning. Once the SCA victim collapses, he or she has about five minutes to receive an AED shock to reset the heart’s rhythm. Without the AED shock the chance of surviving decreases by 10 percent every minute that life saving measures are not initiated (early, identification and activation, early CPR and early defibrillation).

If you are interested in becoming a HeartSafe Workplace/Campus or would like more information about HeartSafe, please contact the Southeast Health Foundation at sehealthfoundation@southeasthealth.org or call 334-673-4150.

Hummingbird Banding Program at Dothan Area Botanical Gardens

Dothan Area Botanical Gardens

10:00 am to 12:00 pm


5130 Headland Ave ,

Here is your chance to see a hummingbird up close!  Join master hummingbird bander Sarah Driver to learn more about these amazing and beautiful birds at Dothan Area Botanical Gardens (DABG) as she will attempt to capture and band local hummingbirds.  Workshops will be held the 2nd Saturday May thru September.

The program will begin at 10:00am in the Walden Farmhouse.  Registration is necessary and the cost is $10 for the general public or $5 for Garden members.  Spaces are limited.

Driver has been banding hummingbirds for over 35 years and learned the trade from her great uncle, James Johnson, a master bander.  Banding hummingbirds is a true skill because the birds legs are so tiny.  There are less than 200 licensed hummingbird banders in the entire United States.  Driver and her husband are new residents of Dothan.

Although 14 different species of hummingbird have been spotted in Alabama, the Ruby-Throated hummingbird is the most common. Hummingbirds generally migrate to Central America during the winter, but some do not.  Their wingbeat is an amazing 20 to 80 beats per second and their flying abilities are well- known.  Hummingbirds can fly backwards, forward, straight up or straight down, and even backwards.  During their daily activity, hummingbirds burn a tremendous amount of calories and usually feed about 4 or 5 times an hour.

Driver will return each month through September to present additional hummingbird banding programs.  Other program dates are September 14th. All programs begin at 10am and pre-registration is necessary.

The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens includes over 20 different “pocket gardens” including a daylily garden, hydrangea garden, Asian garden, herb garden, demonstration garden and more.  Other features of the 46-acre garden include “Wings of Wonder” Butterfly House, a wedding garden, gazebo, picnic pavilion, children’s playground and the 8,000 sq ft. Ralph & Carolyn Smith Botanical Center.

The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens is located at 5130 Headland Ave. in Dothan.  The pet-friendly (must be on a leash) facility is open from 9am-6pm.  Butterfly House hours are 10am-4pm. For more information, please contact the garden office at 334-793-3224 or visit www.dabg.com

An Evening with Paul McDonald

Mural City Coffee Company

7:00 pm to 10:00 pm


Live at the Opera presents a special evening at Mural City Coffee Company with singer-songwriter Paul McDonald.

An Alabama native and rising star, Paul McDonald’s voice is immediately recognizable and impossible to ignore. Often compared to legends like Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan, the poetic story-driven narratives and deeply catchy hooks in his music are delivered by a raspy yet refined voice reminiscent of another era that demands to be heard right now. He pulls off the rare feat of being a poet, visual artist, songwriter, adamant performer, and a powerful vocalist. Paul’s hope is to spread peace, love, and unity through his music. Connection & community through song. Paul visits the Wiregrass as part of his summer 2024 tour and in support of his most recent album, “Modern Hearts”.

This event is a 21 and over event. Wine and beverages will be available for guest purchase.

Heart Safe Press the Chest CPR Training

Southeast Alabama EMS Offices

8:30 am to 12:00 pm


2323 W Main Street Ste 223 ,

Southeast Health Foundation is leading a community-wide initiative to develop a HeartSafe Program for the region. Starting at home, the Southeast Health Foundation is partnering with the City of Dothan, the Dothan Fire Department and Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce to form an advisory committee to establish a HeartSafe program in Houston County. The goal of this partnership is the reduction of deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurring in the community.

The program focuses on four lifesaving elements, which improve survival for cardiac arrest victims:

  1. Early Identification – Promoting awareness of the signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest, to encourage bystanders to call 9-1-1 immediately.
  2. Early CPR – Increasing the number of individuals trained in Hands-only CPR, which increases the chance of effective defibrillation.
  3. Early Defibrillation – Increasing access to and awareness of automated external defibrillators (AED) throughout the community, which is a critical link for survival.
  4. EMS Intervention – Basic and advanced care provided by EMS is critical. Steps 1-3 by the public aid EMS and provide the best chance for a cardiac arrest victim’s survival.

Through the initiative, workplaces, campuses and communities in Houston County will be encouraged to become recognized as HeartSafe. To be eligible, an organization must complete an application and meet certain criteria, which includes ensuring an adequate number of individuals are trained in hands-only CPR and that automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available within a certain distance.

As a major contributor and program supporter of the HeartSafe initiative, the Dothan Fire Department will host the first in a series of hands-only CPR training classes on Saturday, April 30th at the new Wiregrass Public Safety Center. For more information about the event, please call the Southeast Health Foundation or check out our Facebook page.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

SCA is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 300,000 lives annually. Approximately 95 percent of SCA victims die before they reach a hospital or receive medical attention.

Hummingbird Banding Program at Dothan Area Botanical Gardens

Dothan Area Botanical Gardens

10:00 am to 12:00 pm


5130 Headland Ave ,

Here is your chance to see a hummingbird up close!  Join master hummingbird bander Sarah Driver to learn more about these amazing and beautiful birds at Dothan Area Botanical Gardens (DABG) as she will attempt to capture and band local hummingbirds.  Workshops will be held the 2nd Saturday May thru September.

The program will begin at 10:00am in the Walden Farmhouse.  Registration is necessary and the cost is $10 for the general public or $5 for Garden members.  Spaces are limited.

Driver has been banding hummingbirds for over 35 years and learned the trade from her great uncle, James Johnson, a master bander.  Banding hummingbirds is a true skill because the birds legs are so tiny.  There are less than 200 licensed hummingbird banders in the entire United States.  Driver and her husband are new residents of Dothan.

Although 14 different species of hummingbird have been spotted in Alabama, the Ruby-Throated hummingbird is the most common. Hummingbirds generally migrate to Central America during the winter, but some do not.  Their wingbeat is an amazing 20 to 80 beats per second and their flying abilities are well- known.  Hummingbirds can fly backwards, forward, straight up or straight down, and even backwards.  During their daily activity, hummingbirds burn a tremendous amount of calories and usually feed about 4 or 5 times an hour.

Driver will return each month through September to present additional hummingbird banding programs.  All programs begin at 10am and pre-registration is necessary.

The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens includes over 20 different “pocket gardens” including a daylily garden, hydrangea garden, Asian garden, herb garden, demonstration garden and more.  Other features of the 46-acre garden include “Wings of Wonder” Butterfly House, a wedding garden, gazebo, picnic pavilion, children’s playground and the 8,000 sq ft. Ralph & Carolyn Smith Botanical Center.

The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens is located at 5130 Headland Ave. in Dothan.  The pet-friendly (must be on a leash) facility is open from 9am-6pm.  Butterfly House hours are 10am-4pm. For more information, please contact the garden office at 334-793-3224 or visit www.dabg.com

He is the great nephew of Allen Mills or Lost & Found Bluegrass and nephew of the late, great bassist Jason Moore. On mandolin, Dalton Smith of Alderson, WV.

Heart Safe Press the Chest CPR Training

Southeast Alabama EMS Offices

8:30 am to 12:00 pm


2323 W Main Street Ste 223 ,

Southeast Health Foundation is leading a community-wide initiative to develop a HeartSafe Program for the region. Starting at home, the Southeast Health Foundation is partnering with the City of Dothan, the Dothan Fire Department and Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce to form an advisory committee to establish a HeartSafe program in Houston County. The goal of this partnership is the reduction of deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurring in the community.

The program focuses on four lifesaving elements, which improve survival for cardiac arrest victims:

  1. Early Identification – Promoting awareness of the signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest, to encourage bystanders to call 9-1-1 immediately.
  2. Early CPR – Increasing the number of individuals trained in Hands-only CPR, which increases the chance of effective defibrillation.
  3. Early Defibrillation – Increasing access to and awareness of automated external defibrillators (AED) throughout the community, which is a critical link for survival.
  4. EMS Intervention – Basic and advanced care provided by EMS is critical. Steps 1-3 by the public aid EMS and provide the best chance for a cardiac arrest victim’s survival.

Through the initiative, workplaces, campuses and communities in Houston County will be encouraged to become recognized as HeartSafe. To be eligible, an organization must complete an application and meet certain criteria, which includes ensuring an adequate number of individuals are trained in hands-only CPR and that automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available within a certain distance.

As a major contributor and program supporter of the HeartSafe initiative, the Dothan Fire Department will host the first in a series of hands-only CPR training classes on Saturday, April 30th at the new Wiregrass Public Safety Center. For more information about the event, please call the Southeast Health Foundation or check out our Facebook page.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

SCA is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 300,000 lives annually. Approximately 95 percent of SCA victims die before they reach a hospital or receive medical attention.

SCA generally occurs without warning. Once the SCA victim collapses, he or she has about five minutes to receive an AED shock to reset the heart’s rhythm. Without the AED shock the chance of surviving decreases by 10 percent every minute that life saving measures are not initiated (early, identification and activation, early CPR and early defibrillation).

If you are interested in becoming a HeartSafe Workplace/Campus or would like more information about HeartSafe, please contact the Southeast Health Foundation at sehealthfoundation@southeasthealth.org or call 334-673-4150.

  3. Early Defibrillation – Increasing access to and awareness of automated external defibrillators (AED) throughout the community, which is a critical link for survival.
  4. EMS Intervention – Basic and advanced care provided by EMS is critical. Steps 1-3 by the public aid EMS and provide the best chance for a cardiac arrest victim’s survival.

Through the initiative, workplaces, campuses and communities in Houston County will be encouraged to become recognized as HeartSafe. To be eligible, an organization must complete an application and meet certain criteria, which includes ensuring an adequate number of individuals are trained in hands-only CPR and that automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available within a certain distance.

As a major contributor and program supporter of the HeartSafe initiative, the Dothan Fire Department will host the first in a series of hands-only CPR training classes on Saturday, April 30th at the new Wiregrass Public Safety Center. For more information about the event, please call the Southeast Health Foundation or check out our Facebook page.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

SCA is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 300,000 lives annually. Approximately 95 percent of SCA victims die before they reach a hospital or receive medical attention.

SCA generally occurs without warning. Once the SCA victim collapses, he or she has about five minutes to receive an AED shock to reset the heart’s rhythm. Without the AED shock the chance of surviving decreases by 10 percent every minute that life saving measures are not initiated (early, identification and activation, early CPR and early defibrillation).

If you are interested in becoming a HeartSafe Workplace/Campus or would like more information about HeartSafe, please contact the Southeast Health Foundation at sehealthfoundation@southeasthealth.org or call 334-673-4150.
