Staying Healthy in Maine

We developed this information to provide a healthy living resource for our Maine ACLS, PALS and BLS certification customers. The purpose of this page is to promote physical activity and healthy eating in the state of Maine. The team at Rush ACLS understands the urgent need for people to exercise and eat correctly. Please read on for some great activities that Maine residents can do to get out of the house and become more active.
