Project Heart Start is making its way back to UNM’s campus to educate the public on life-saving skills that can be used in a time of emergency. A CPR class, originally scheduled for Feb 19, but postponed due to inclement weather, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. in Lobo A&B in the UNM Student Union Building (SUB).

Open to UNM staff, faculty and students, the training gives participants the opportunity to learn how to save lives. There is limited availability for the workshop, which is open to the first 90 attendees. Interested attendees must use the new signup sheet to confirm attendance. 

The training teaches:

  • Lifesaving skills
  • Compression-only CPR
  • Use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  • Recongize signs of a heart attack
  • Save a choking victim
  • Stop the bleed training
  • New Mexico Good Samaritan Law

Project Heart Start is presented by The New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation, Dr. Barry W. Ramo, chairman and president, and Mark Reynolds, associate director, UNM IT, Robert Perry, Emergency Preparedness and Byron Piatt, emergency manager.
