February 24, 2012

CPR Anytime kitThirty-two people die every day in North Carolina of cardiac arrest, but that could change if more people were trained to do CPR.

WakeMed Cardiologist Dr. George Hamrick, spoke with NBC 17 this week about the importance of learning CPR during a “Feel the Beat: CPR Anytime” event in Garner.

The program includes a presentation on the warning signs and symptoms of heart attack, followed by a 30-minute CPR Anytime training. Participants will receive a free training kit per household.

The next CPR Anytime training session will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, February 29 at WakeMed Brier Creek Healthplex, 8001 T.W. Alexancer Drive & ACC Boulevard.
