Update for November 2020
We've just released the new EHAC/CPR/AED Poster in English. This poster provides a broad overview of the steps that a responder should take if they miss the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack. This does not replace CPR or AED certification, but it is meant to make people more responsive to a person in need.
Update for October 2020:
New! For all chest pain coordinators that are deploying the EHAC outreach in their facility, the video above provides a step-by-step process. If you have any questions or if you need the materials in the video, please visit the Educational Materials page or contact us.
New! The new Community-Based outreach is now available for our hospitals. To see an example, visit the UF Health Central Florida page on our website. To request a demo, please contact us. To register your hospital, please fill out the form and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
Update for September 2020: The new EHAC Postcards are now available. Do you need a smaller hand-out for your outreach? We've created the "EHAC Postcard" Series. The free downloads are available in English, Spanish, and Marshallese. The setup is similar to the EHAC Pledge Cards and you can create four handouts from one 8.5" x 11" page. Also, don't miss us at the ACC Quality Summit Virtual. Registration is free and the Deputy Heart Attack program will be sharing the latest Early Heart Attack Care educational information.Update for August 2020:

As hospitals are re-starting their summer educational series and training new employees, there are new constraints while following CDC and local guidelines. We'd like to thank Nancy G. and Rocky G. at UF Health Leesburg and The Villages for submitting their educational outreach updates. For UF Health, during their Stroke Awareness events, they distributed the EHAC brochures, pledge cards, bookmarks and the new EHAC Kids Deputy Hearty materials. In addition, during their recent new employee training, Nancy created EHAC welcome kits that included these materials enclosed in a plastic gift bag. During these events, everyone wore masks and there was plenty of hand sanitizer.
Don't forget - we will add your hospital logo to the front of the EHAC brochures in both English and Spanish. This is a free service, but you will have to submit your logo. Please ask your marketing team for a high resolution jpg or an .eps file format. If you have any questions, please contact us. If you need to purchase EHAC materials, please visit our online store.
It is being reported across the USA that people are not seeking timely treatment for suspected heart attacks and strokes. Whatever the reason, our mission remains the same - get people immediate care for a suspected cardiovacular event!
