Coalition of 50 Organizations Takes a Stand Against Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Washington, DC--In recognition of National Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month, the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Coalition (SCAC), in cooperation with the Congressional Heart and Stroke Caucus, hosted “Take a Stand Against Sudden Cardiac Arrest,” a two-hour event teaching the basics of Hands-Only CPR and use of AEDs (automated external defibrillators) Wednesday in the Rayburn House Office Building Foyer on Capitol Hill.

The Coalition is comprised of 50 non-profit organizations with a common interest in preventing death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The event featured four, concurrent-training sessions on CPR and AED use and recognized legislators for their important work raising awareness of SCA.
