Raleigh, NC – Thanks to the work of our Advocacy department, North Carolina became the fifth state in the country to pass legislation requiring high school students to take CPR training before they graduate from high school.
Spectrum News anchor Caroline Blair sat down with Anne Miller, the executive director in the Raleigh office, for an in depth look at CPR in communities and schools. The push to help people become CPR certified continues, as two AHA sponsors, Skanska and Brasfield Gorrie, donated 12 CPR in Schools Training Kits to Wake County Public Schools on the Hard Hats for Heart event.
