Advocates in New Jersey are still hard at work advocating for CPR training in the Garden State's high schools.
Recently, several high school students joined representatives from the American Heart Association and the John Taylor Babbitt Foundation for a meeting with Assemblyman Patrick Diegnan, Chair of the Assembly Education Committee. The students are leaders of "Heart Clubs" at their high school. They are all trained in CPR and spoke about the impact that heart disease had had on them personally and the importance of young people learning CPR.
The American Heart Association thanks Assemblyman Diegnan for taking the time to meet with high school students in the state to hear about the importance of learning CPR. We hope that sometime soon, all students in New Jersey will be learning this life-saving skill.
