Discover Your Peers and Find Support through the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Network
Survivors, Advocates, Healthcare Professionals Invited to Become Early Adopters
The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation has launched a new online community, the “Sudden Cardiac Arrest Network”™. The Network is targeted toward patients and families personally affected by sudden cardiac arrest, public safety and healthcare professionals, and other advocates. It provides a way for community members to find others with similar experiences and interests, provide mutual support, and work in collaboration toward common goals. Members can create Facebook-like profile pages, search for their peers, and can “friend” one another.
“We are excited to offer an online community through which sudden cardiac arrest survivors and their loved ones, those who have lost someone to SCA, and other advocates can support one another, share information, and help raise awareness so more lives can be saved,” said Mary Newman, MS, SCA Foundation President. “We invite everyone who is interested in this important lifesaving cause to join the Network and help build the world’s largest and most active online SCA community.”
