The New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation hosts Project Heart Start in an effort to educate all capable citizens to perform compression-only CPR and save the lives of victims who suffer from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Participants will learn to assess a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, call 911, correctly perform chest compressions, recognize the signs of a heart attack, save someone who is choking by performing the Heimlich maneuver and use an AED.

There will be 24 sessions over a course of three days, Dec. 5 through Dec. 7. Each course has a limit of 24 participants. UNM IT will provide these free training led by Mark Reynolds and Jade Walters.
