The Mikey Network is so proud to have been honoured with the 2011 SCAA Public Service Award, by the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association at their 2011 Leadership Awards & Benefit.
In their words:
Furthering efforts to increase public safety and consciousness of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in communities across the country, the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association (SCAA) honored medical institutions, nonprofit organizations, corporate citizens and patient advocates with its 2011 Leadership Awards for their work to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), prevent sudden cardiac death and improve cardiovascular health. The awards were presented Saturday, September 24, 2011, at the SCAA Benefit and Awards Dinner in Minneapolis, Minnesota, taking place in conjunction with the 2011 SCAA Annual Meeting.
“This year’s award recipients have made a significant mark in the fight to increase survivability from SCA. Whether through public policy, emergency medicine, or community initiatives, these honorees have strategically influenced the public’s understanding of SCA,” said Jeffrey G. Micklos, chairman of SCAA.
SCAA is The United States’ largest non-profit advocacy organization exclusively dedicated to SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) awareness and prevention. Its membership is comprised of SCA survivors, medical professionals, patient advocates, emergency responders, educators and legislators dedicated to promoting solutions to prevent sudden cardiac death through increased awareness, immediate bystander action, public access to defibrillation (PAD) and access to therapies.
