Recently, Governor Pence signed House Bill 1290 into law. This bill requires all high school students to be trained in CPR prior to graduation. The American Heart Association would like to thank every volunteer who helped us advocate for this issue!
So what are the next steps? This law goes into effect on July 1st, 2014, which means schools will begin integrating this requirement into their curriculum next year. The American Heart Association is working closely with the Department of Education to ensure schools have the resources they need to properly train the next generation of life-savers!
