Ajitha launched a low-cost CPR training program at Danbury Hospital over the summer. CPR was taught to the families of patients identified as high risk (low cardiac output, previous MIs, ST-elevation). An instructor and EMT herself, Ajitha discusses how she was able to apply her training from UConn in her hometown.
