The American Heart Association’s CPR and AED Awareness week is recognized every year during the first week of June. This year’s week of activities culminated with an awareness walk through the streets of St. John’s Antigua on June 7th, organized by AUA’s EMTC/CSRC team, headed by Marlon Destin.

The walk was well attended by members of the armed forces, representatives from several sectors of the Ministry of Health, AUA staff, faculty and members of the public. This was just one of many activities the Emergency Medicine Training Center conducted throughout the week, bringing awareness to the residents of Antigua and Barbuda on the importance of hands only CPR and AEDs in saving lives.

AUA congratulates Marlon and his amazing team for this well-organized week of events, and ongoing awareness efforts!
