Washington D.C., Georgetown (Founding Chapter)

Georgetown University is Heroes for Hearts' founding chapter, started by Nirmal and Brandon as freshman studying Human Science. The small percentage of the Washington DC community trained in Citizen CPR showed that there was a clear need for efforts that would empower community members to learn this lifesaving skill. Nirmal and Brandon began with this chapter to start their efforts in raising CPR awareness, in hopes that it would expand to other universities in the DC area, the United States, and around the world.

Kuwait

Heroes for Hearts (H4H) first international chapter was founded in Kuwait. H4H saw a severe need for increased bystander CPR rates in Kuwait as the average age of a heart attack or cardiac arrest is 10 years younger in the nation than the global average. Additionally, according to the World Health Organization heart disease accounts for over 41% of all deaths in Kuwait. H4H believes that increased bystander CPR trainings will increase the likelihood that a trained community member will be at the right place at the right time to save a life. To that effect, H4H as recruited a team of exceptional medical and dental students as well as a practicing pediactrician to carry out bystander CPR trainings in Kuwait.
