Loyola University Chicago’s Student-Led EMS Group to Hold CPR Marathon
This Saturday and Sunday, Loyola’s LUCEMS group, a student-led emergency medical services group, will hold a CPR marathon on the University’s Lake Shore Campus, providing CPR classes to Loyolans and the greater Chicago community for 26.2 straight hours.
The classes will be taught by LUCEMS volunteers (all current Loyola students) who are certified American Heart Association (AHA) instructors. Classes will begin every two hours, with the last class beginning at 10 a.m. on Sunday, October 25. The group will teach the AHA’s Heartsaver class, which is geared towards everyone, requires no medical experience, and covers adult and infant CPR, automatic external defibrillator use, and choking.
Classes are free for Loyola students, faculty, and staff members, and $35 for the general public. Individuals interested can pre-register by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
