Mississippi Healthcare Alliance Provides CPR Kits to Mississippi High Schools

Category: Parent Points

Mississippi High School students are receiving a life-saving gift from the Mississippi Healthcare Alliance. The Mississippi Healthcare Alliance partnered with the American Heart Association to purchase CPR in Schools Kits for all Mississippi high schools who did not already have a kit. In total, 176 CPR in Schools Kits will be placed in high schools around the state.

In 2014, CPR training as a graduation requirement became law in Mississippi. Mississippi and 34 other states currently have this life-saving requirement.

“More than 400,000 people suffer out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest each year. Nearly 90 percent don’t survive. We would like to change that, and we can’t think of a better place to start than with our state’s students,” said Dr. Harper Stone president of the Mississippi Healthcare Alliance and AHA board member. “The Mississippi Healthcare Alliance is proud to invest in our state’s future by providing students with these American Heart Association’s CPR in Schools kits.”
