UND Cardiac Ready Campus
On January 22, 2020, UND was awarded the designation of being a Cardiac Ready Campus.
As part of its Cardiac Ready Community Project, the North Dakota Health Department encouraged North Dakota’s colleges and universities to bolster their cardiac event readiness and heart disease awareness programs. This project included educating faculty, staff, and students on the risk of heart disease, screening them for conditions such as hypertension, and training them in both CPR and use of automated external defibrillator (AED) devices.
The CRC campaign focused on four distinct aspects of cardiac health and readiness: stroke, hypertension, heart attack, and CPR/AED training. To date, no college campus in North Dakota has earned the designation, making UND’s effort the first of its kind.
