Donations to the Public Awareness Research Fund

Thousands of lives could be saved each year if more people understood sudden cardiac arrest and the simple things anyone can do to save a life. We are conducting quantitative and qualitative research to identify the most effective ways to communicate with the public about the urgent need for laypersons to recognize sudden cardiac arrest when it occurs and take immediate action. This information will be used as the foundation for development of a public awareness campaign.
