CPR Week is this week; PSA premieres today; national awareness campaign supported by $4.5 million grant from WellPoint Foundation
Nashville, TN – Remember disco? The American Heart Association and comedic actress Jennifer Coolidge are pumping new life into a 70s disco classic to help save lives.
The Bee Gees’ hit “Stayin’ Alive” – which is the near-perfect rate for doing chest compressions during CPR – is a centerpiece of the American Heart Association’s new Hands-Only CPR awareness campaign that will ask Americans to take 60 seconds to learn the life-saving skill online, or hands-on at local training events. The campaign and brand-new PSA launch today to mark CPR Week.
