The American Heart Association has reached a major milestone in the campaign to train a generation of lifesavers. As a result of legislation in 16 states, most recently Oklahoma, requiring students to receive basic instruction in CPR prior to graduation, over one million students will be trained on an annual basis.
Just two weeks prior, Governor Mary Fallin signed House Bill 1378 by Rep. Emily Virgin and Sen. John Sparks. This momentous occasion was extra special as the Governor attended the Oklahoma City Go Red for Women Luncheon that very same day.
Upon her arrival, the chair of the event as well as AHA staff and volunteers thanked the Governor for her signature on this important legislation. This achievement would not have been possible without the support of both the OKC and Tulsa offices, board members, volunteers, SWA Advocacy and grassroots staff, and NATC team.
Help us thank Governor Fallin, Representative Virgin and Senator Sparks by taking action now.
