CVTeam

TOP ACCOMPLISHMENT

The CVTeam Leadership leaned in and overcame stiff odds to push through and accomplish the mission of their 2020 BOG Grant which was to teach basic CPR in Black and Brown neighborhoods. Statistic show that Black and Brown people are much less likely to receive CPR by bystanders. The leadership partnered with youth from the Food Project, a non-profit in Southwest Baltimore that aims to empower Southwest Baltimore youth through culinary skills, job opportunities, and mentoring. Together the students and leadership produced a ‘TikTok’ type video showing Black and Brown students performing pillow CPR and knowing how to react in a stimulated sudden cardiac event. They were also trained in CPR. This video is on YouTube and was distributed by our student ‘cardio stars’ and Tweeted and retweeted to gain awareness.
