Angela Kain, a paid on-call emergency medical technician in Woodbury, was recently spotted teaching a hands-only CPR class. Kain regularly teaches the classes as part of the city’s “Take Heart Woodbury” public health campaign.
Woodbury launched the campaign in February 2012, and now more than 8,000 residents have been trained in hands-only CPR. The program was the winner of a League of Minnesota Cities 2013 City of Excellence Award. You can read more about Woodbury's CPR initiative in the November-December 2013 issue of Minnesota Cities magazine.
