Southwest Scholars Learn CPR

Scholars in Southwest CDC’s afterschool program at Patterson elementary school participated in an engaging hands on CPR workshop led by Dr. Cody Gathers and Dr. Priya Brito, physicians at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. During this workshop scholars learned what to do if they ever were alone with someone in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Initially the scholars were afraid to do chest compressions on the mannequin dolls, but once they began to practice doing the compressions they became less frightened. Scholars walked away with the understanding that it is important to call 911 immediately and begin doing chest compressions until the ambulance arrives. The workshop ended with cheers as the scholars thanked Dr. Gathers and Dr. Priya with the Patterson school spirit song.
