Survivors and Families Invited to Participate in Facilitated Discussion in Hospitality Suite During ECCU 2017

PITTSBURGH, PA--A hallmark of the Citizen CPR Foundation’s Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update (ECCU) conference, scheduled for December 5-8 at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans is a track devoted to sudden cardiac arrest survivors, family members, and rescuers.

Giving Tuesday: Why Giving to Others Makes us Feel Good

CLEVELAND, OH--The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is designated as ‘Giving Tuesday’ – a day earmarked for doing for others or donating to charitable causes.

And while we might think that giving only benefits the recipient of the gift, according to Joseph Rock PsyD, of Cleveland Clinic, that’s not entirely the case.

He said our brains experience joy when we are the giver too.

“Part of your brain gets activated when you do charitable giving or engage in altruistic behavior, so we really do receive biochemical, physical pleasure from doing things for other people,” said Dr. Rock.
