Mugtalk Monday: Michael Charles
This month, we started 'Mugtalk Mondays' where we will highlight extraordinary You're the Cure advocates across the Greater Southeast Affiliate of the American Heart Association. Michael Charles is the first advocate we highlighted!
When I met Michael Charles, I knew he was extraordinary. His passion for educating the public about early CPR and the use of an AED is contagious. When he's working as a paramedic, he's out in the field saving lives. When he's off the clock, you may just find him at the Georgia Capitol, ten manikins on the marble floor, music pumping at 100 beats per minute to help keep time of chest compressions, surrounded by visitors and legislators alike.

CPR is a Skill Worth Teaching
The American Heart Association wants all students to receive hands-on training in CPR prior to their graduation from high school.
Why am I an advocate? What got me started down this path?
