Project ADAM, a UC Davis Children’s Hospital program, is committed to making automated external defibrillators (AEDs) universally available to all children and adolescents,  as well as working toward eradicating sudden cardiac death in children through research, education and prevention initiatives. Established at UC Davis Children’s Hospital in 2015, Project ADAM Sacramento is the first California affiliate of Project ADAM.

On May 20, Project ADAM Sacramento hosted a free community health fair and CPR/AED training event at Sacramento Charter High School. The event gave recognition to St. Hope Public School District for taking action to assure cardiac emergency preparedness for the safety of its students, staff and visitors.

The event, funded by Children’s Miracle Network at UC Davis was open to the public and featured CPR/AED training, entertainment, face painting, free food and family fun. The event also celebrated implementation of a comprehensive CPR and AED program at every school in the St. Hope school district.

“Witnessing the students and staff demonstrate their CPR and AED skills during the Oak Part Has Heart event was rewarding,” said Amber Lindgren, Project ADAM Sacramento coordinator. “I am honored to support this critical effort in our community.”
