As the year comes to an end, we would like to thank all of our readers and clients for another successful year at CardioServ. We started the year off with goals to:
Let’s see how we did as we look back on 2017 here at CardioServ!
This year Andrea Fields joined our team as our new Cardiac Director and she was fundamental in helping us achieve our goal of writing more. We increased the number of blogs written from 17 in 2016 to 67 blogs written in 2017! Our blogs included series on the right heart, nuclear cardiology, mitral valve and diastology. Ingrid Marais, our graphic designer, added custom designs and drawings to our blogs to make them easier and more enjoyable to read.
Last year we collectively walked 250 miles on our treadmill desk and we set a goal to walk 350 miles this year. We walk for many reasons – to stay healthy, to prevent DVTs, to keep our creative juices moving and to raise money for charity! With the help of Rhiannon Anderson, we were able to blow our goal away and walk 460 miles this year! CardioServ donates a dollar for each mile walked, and the person who walks the most miles selects the charity so we will announce Rhiannon’s decision on the charity that will receive $460.
This year we sent out weekly newsletters with our blog and industry updates to keep our readers and clients up to date on industry news. In addition, with the help of our summer intern Pratik Amit Doshi we have continued to build up our social media platforms. We are active on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and now Instagram. Keep an eye out for our Trivia Tuesdays!
This year was the year of firsts!
With the help of Rochelle Goldberg our volunteer coordinator, we participated in some fun and successful volunteer events this year including staffing the survivor tents at the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure and the AHA Heart Walk. We volunteered at our local schools, hosted BLS training and even held a free Yoga class on International Yoga Day!
We are proud of the many ways we have connected this year to our readers and clients.
