Volunteering is near and dear to us, and many of our thousands of Instructors volunteer their services to make communities safer in many ways.
National Volunteer Week is coming up April 23-29, brought to you by Points of Light, is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community.

The CDC and its partners released a website that provides first-of-its-kind, neighborhood-level health data for the 500 largest US cities. The 500 Cities project provides data on 5 risk behaviors, 13 health outcomes, and 9 prevention practices for the most common, costly, and preventable chronic diseases. Health professionals can view data by city or census tract, explore the interactive map, get map books for individual cities, and compare cities to identify emerging health problems and plan effective interventions.
