It’s an exciting time for The Mikey Network! We’re seeing a lot of interest from the media about our new Mikey Young At Heart app. Yesterday CTV Barrie did a news segment about the app at Humberview Secondary School in Caledon.
Grade 12 student AJ Wilson talked about how prominent the MIKEY defibrillator is at his high school, right near the front doors. AJ himself has been trained in how to use the MIKEY and said that he would like to see AED training integrated as part of the student’s Health curriculum, along with physical education.
Our president Eva Naumvoski was interviewed by Roger Klein about our app. She spoke about the app not only teaching students CPR and AED skills, but also giving them the community service hours they need to graduate high school in Ontario.
