The mission of the West Virginia Heart Safe Schools Project is to reduce sudden cardiac death (SCD) in school-aged children through recognition of those at greatest risk of SCD and maximizing emergent defibrillation for those suffering a SCA event by ensuring robust and effective school-based AED programs.
The objective of the West Virginia Heart Safe Schools Project is to accomplish our mission by maximizing the number of ProjectADAM designated Heart Safe Schools in the state of West Virginia.
