Sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 400,000 people in the U.S. every year. Surprisingly, 9,000 of those are under the age of 18. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if those close by had been trained to perform a few simple lifesaving steps.

Learn how to save a life at the 6th annual Project Heart Start Day and Health Fair on Saturday, June 20, at several locations around New Mexico. The 40-minute session will teach you what to do if someone near you experiences a sudden cardiac arrest, chokes or displays the symptoms of a heart attack.
