Our guest speakers this morning were Dr. Azita G. Hamedani along with her son Zadan Mason who updated us on Project ADAM.

Dr. Hamedani is a practicing academic emergency physician and founding Chair of the BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine at University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health. 

Zadan Mason is a sophomore at University School of Milwaukee (USM), where he worked closely with the school nurse, Ms. Kathleen Roebber, to secure Heart Safe School designation from Project ADAM. 

Project ADAM was created in 1999 to help increase awareness of sudden cardiac arrest in students, as every three days a US high school student athlete dies of cardiac arrest which could be prevented through quick action of bystanders.
