HEALTH CARE
Cardiac arrest registry expansion will help increase survival rates nationally
In 2004 Emory and the CDC developed what has become the largest data registry on survival rates from out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. Now increased funding will allow expansion to all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

 

HONORS
