What are we doing to improve Anchorage?

CPR --- When CPR is performed properly and promptly during cardiac arrest, survival rates can double or triple. We work to make this lifesaving training accessible to everyone. Healthy For Good - We are workin to weave healthy living practices and opportunities into our community. We are making it easier to be healthy where we live, work, learn and play. Join us and become Healthy For Good.
Research - Groundbreaking research is vital to improving local patient outcomes. By driving scientific breakthroughs and creating guidelines for care that reflect the latest proven findings we improve the way that local hospitals help prevent, treat and recover from heart disease and stroke. Workplace Wellness - On average, men and women spend more than half of their waking hours at work - which can have a significant impact on our health. That is why we collaborate with local businesses to create a more physically active, health conscious culture in the office.

Sinnamon BoveryOn January 25, 1996 Sinnamon Bovery’s son Jackson Grey Moore(Grey) was born. Thought to be healthy, he went home two days later. After less than an hour in his new home, Grey’s color had changed and he was lifeless. Sinnamon called for help and Grey’s father Daniel ran into the room and began CPR. Her mother called 911, and within minutes police arrived and took over. After a long ambulance ride to the hospital, and 45 minutes of CPR, baby Grey finally took a breath on his own. Because the CPR instructor at Daniel’s work convinced him to take a refresher course he was able to take action immediately. That combined with the quick arrival of the police and paramedics and the knowledgeable staff at TC Thompson Children’s Hospital, Grey is now in junior high school. Sinnamon is a proud volunteer and often shares their survival story.
