At last week’s CPR class for 90 counselors for the Jefferson County Public School system, the Louisville Courier Journal covered the event with photographer Alton Strupp and then a follow-up interview with Darla Carter, a reporter for the Courier.
The CJ story begins:
Louisville cardiologist William Dillon wants people who go into cardiac arrest at home or in other non-hospital settings to have a fighting chance to survive. So he and his wife, Sally, have started a foundation to teach people hands-only CPR.
Since May, the Start the Heart Foundation has taught more than 1,300 people the simplified form of CPR at sites that have ranged from schools and churches to a cycling event off River Road. It also is considering taking its free training to the Dirt Bowl in Shawnee Park, and is seeking out small groups elsewhere in the community to train.
Here is the title and link to the full story: Foundation raising awareness about hands-only CPR
Start the Heart Foundation offers hands-only CPR classes for free. We teach these classes in approximately 30 minutes and can accommodate up to 90 people at a class.
