 American Heart Association (AHA) Hands-Only CPR demonstrations in the Quad.  

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don’t be afraid. Your actions can only help. Join us in the quad for a live demonstration and learn how you can double a person’s chances of survival.
