Be the one to learn CPR
You can be the difference for someone you love
Learn Hands-Only CPR Today
Nearly 3 out of 4 cardiac arrests that don’t happen in hospitals happen at home. For American Heart Month, join us in an urgent challenge for one person in every home to learn CPR. Be the beat for someone you love when it matters most. Find more resources on CPR, including our Heartsaver Virtual training course at cpr.heart.org.
Be the Beat for Your Family
Black or Hispanic adults who suffer a cardiac arrest outside the hospital are substantially less likely to receive CPR from someone on the street or at home. In honor of Black History Month, be the beat for your community and family. You can make an immediate impact by learning Hands-Only CPR Today.
Be the Beat for the Women in Your Life
Women are less likely to receive CPR than men because people are afraid to touch them. Meet Sharell Weeams and Brittany Williams, CPR Survivors and two of our Go Red for Women 2023 Real Women Class. Their powerful stories reveal why learning CPR is so important to save more women’s lives.
Remembering Dr. Ralph Sacco

Sacco, a distinguished AHA/ASA volunteer and a revered scientist, served as editor-in-chief of the journal Stroke in addition to other leadership roles.
