4 Minute City
Friends of Heart is partnering with Avive Solutions to significantly increase survival rates from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in Jackson through a first-of-its-kind program called 4 Minute City. We are bringing cutting-edge technology to Jackson by placing Avive's intelligent AEDs across the city and deploying their new cardiac arrest response technology. Most importantly, we are working with the citizens of Jackson through free training and educational resources so we are all prepared to save a life.
Ways to Give
Your donation will be placed back into our community to ensure we have the best heart and vascular care available here in West Tennessee. All dollars stay local and are used to serve our community. There are many ways you can be a part of the efforts to advance heart and vascular treatment and prevention!
Youth EKG Screenings
Our latest initiative allows us to be proactive about the cardiac health of our youth in Madison County. We are providing youth EKG screenings to student-athletes, band members, and ROTC cadets to check for preexisting heart conditions at no cost to the students or their families. The EKGs are read by a team of pediatric cardiologists, and we make sure any that need a closer look are scheduled within a timely manner with the goal of getting students back out on the field or court with peace of mind about their cardiac health!
