Media Advisory: Emerald Cove MS Students to Receive Hands-Only CPR Training from Medical Academy Students

WELLINGTON-  Emerald Cove Middle School students will get a lesson of a lifetime from students in the Medial Academy at John I. Leonard High School as they are trained in Hands-Only C.P.R. and managing a critical health situation when seconds count.
WHEN: Wednesday, February 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
WHERE: Emerald Cove Middle School gymnasium
                9950 Stribling Way
State Legislation for C.P.R. in schools began in 2016 and new laws in many states will require schools to train students in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (C.P.R.) before high school graduation. “Team Certified” from John I Leonard High School has started the program that may become the standard for all Palm Beach County schools in the near future.
This training is made possible because of the funding and mentoring “Team Certified” received from Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank. The team was one of nine finalists that participated in last year’s event and was awarded $12,500 to help fulfill their idea to bring these lessons and the necessary equipment to students around the District.
