CPR in Schools

Help us get legislation passed in New York State requiring high schools to make CPR a part of their Health curriculum.  Click here to write Senator Little about how important it is for our high school students to learn CPR before graduating from High School.  The link will open in a new window, and you'll need to register to send a form letter (AHA promises not to spam your inbox).
