Start the Heart Foundation teaches Hands-Only CPR in Louisville, Ky and surrounding counties. We offer this service at no cost to the recipient, thereby eliminating an important financial barrier. Our Hands-Only CPR classes are 45 minutes long and are taught by CPR certified pre-med college students. During the summer we teach in community centers, churches and businesses and focus on teaching in the medically underserved areas of Louisville where cardiac arrest most prevalent. During the academic year we teach in almost all of the public and private high school health classes. Over the last 3 years we have taught over 25,000 people Hands-Only CPR. We hope educating the community empowers citizens to know what to do during a cardiac arrest emergency and increase cardiac arrest survival rates.
