Don't Miss the Texas Two Step Mass CPR Event Feb. 6

Help the Texas College of Emergency Physicians, HealthCorps, TMA, the American College of Emergency Physicians, and leadership consulting firm MaveRx make history Feb. 6 by joining Texas medical students at the Texas Two Step: How to Save a Life CPR training event. The goal of the free event is to break the world record by teaching 20,000 people in one day to save a life with two simple steps: call 911 and initiate hands-only CPR. Visit the Texas College of Emergency Physicians website for locations and more information.

"Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Texans with four out of five cardiac arrests occurring at home," says Shkelzen Hoxhaj, MD, president of the Texas College of Emergency Physicians. "Research shows CPR saves lives. However, most people are unprepared to help when a loved one, friend, or colleague needs CPR."

Texas Two Step CPR training will offer Texas health care professionals and student doctors an opportunity to work with their communities. Representatives from all nine medical schools across the state will teach the Texas Two Step. CPR training sites include high-traffic areas in Amarillo, Austin, College Station, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Galveston, Houston, Lubbock, and San Antonio. Local sponsors include Texas medical schools, county medical societies, legislators and city officials, and local emergency medical services agencies.
