An Act Concerning The Inclusion of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Training, the Safe Use of Social Media and Computer Programming Instruction in the Public School Curriculum.
This law will mandate CPR training in Connecticut High Schools and has been a long- standing goal of the Connecticut Chapter.
The most important area for CCACC advocacy is the Connecticut Legislature. The CCACC has formed a PAC to maximize our legislative presence. By gathering the support of many Cardiologists into one source, the CCPAC creates a collective source that politicians recognize and respect. The PAC allows CCACC leadership to attend legislative meetings and fund-raisers, building bi-partisan relationships and being a vocal presence at the legislature.
Please join your colleagues in support of cardiology in Connecticut. Your contribution to the CCPAC must be a personal contribution. Checks should be written to CCPAC and mailed to:
