Young and old alike have heart issues. Sadly, some of our teenagers are being impacted by a sometimes hidden heart defect. Fortunately the State of Maryland requires all public school ... high school graduates to have training in hands-only CPR...
A teenager, who at age 17, is a survivor of cardiac arrest due to the quick actions of her teacher and coach. She will be pushing for upgrades to Breanna's Law that requires that training in public school. This student attends a private high school and it was fortunate that when she collapsed CPR-Trained staff were nearby.
Will the state legislature move forward in 2016 to require ALL high schools to teach hands-only CPR in the health curriculum?
Be watching as Anna's Journey collaborates with the American Heart Association, Baltimore County Fire Department and the public and private schools as this initiative moves forward to help save lives!
