RI "CPR in Schools" Bill Signed into Law


Great news – Governor Lincoln Chafee has signed the American Heart Association’s “CPR in Schools” bill into law!  Thank you so much for your support and outreach throughout the legislative session – this victory would not have been possible without the passion and dedication of You’re the Cure advocates like you!

Now, all high school students in Rhode Island will receive hands-on CPR training and an overview of automated external defibrillator (AED) use prior to graduation as part of the health education curriculum.  Thanks to your efforts, we are creating a new generation of lifesavers in Rhode Island.

Please take a minute to thank Governor Chafee for signing this lifesaving measure into law.  Click the following link to take action today:  http://yourethecure.org/aha/advocacy/composeletters.aspx?AlertID=33338
