Sarver Heart Center awarded 10 Investigator Awards totaling $165,000 for the 2019-2020 grant cycle.

Sweitzer, MD, PhD, director of the UA Sarver Heart Center and chief of cardiology.
High school seniors across Arizona will have to know how to perform “Chest-Compression-Only” CPR as a requirement for graduation. “This new law came up suddenly, with the state leaving schools scrambling to comply without providing any resources. That’s why it’s so valuable for schools to have organizations like Sarver Heart Center ... to turn to for help.”
