Did you know that in the United States when a non-white individual experiences cardiac arrest, he or she is less likely to receive bystander CPR before the paramedics arrive?  The 2022 landmark article in the New England Journal of Medicine entitled,"Racial and Ethnic Differences in Bystander CPR for Witnessed Cardiac Arrest," by R.A. Garcia et al., details that white persons are more likely to receive bystander CPR in their own homes (47% versus 39%) and in public (60% versus 46%) than non-white individuals.

Thus we prioritize offering our free education in a culturally competent manner in diverse languages and convenient community settings.
