Continuing to develop a heart safe school, We ended the week with an assembly by Dr. Ankur Doshi, MD on Knowing and Recognizing Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Dr. Doshi is a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and an Attended Physician at UPMC Presbyterian and UPMC Mercy Hospital. He gave a great presentation and encouraged all of our students to be a Superhero in a heart health emergency. We also finished the day with a cardiac drill to give our teacher and student Cardiac Response Team time to practice how to handle a cardiac emergency and use the AED. Special thanks to Dr. Doshi, Heather Newcomer, Jodie Bair, and our entire Cardiac Response Team.
