About Project ADAM
What does Project ADAM do?
The project helps schools across the nation implement public access defibrillation (PAD) programs through support and education. We help schools determine the need for automated external defibrillators (AEDs), secure funding, provide program implementation templates and assist with effective marketing of the program. The project also is involved in research and advocacy efforts.
Who does Project ADAM serve?
Currently, more than 800 Wisconsin schools or school districts have been served by Project ADAM. In addition, Project ADAM is working to establish affiliate sites across the country in order to help all schools become equipped to handle a sudden cardiac incident.
There are Project ADAM affiliate sites in Florida, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Alabama, Washington, Illinois, Texas, and Tennessee with several additional sites in process. It is easy to become a Project ADAM school or affiliate site.
Expertise and leadership
Project ADAM provides a pediatric cardiac advisory committee with the support of Children's Hospital and its resources, to implement a unique program for sharing the most current data and information on sudden cardiac arrest incidents. This ultimately will lead to medical research that will prevent sudden cardiac arrest.
The project also provides leadership experience and expertise as a community, state and national resource, and is a catalyst for creating partnerships and exchanging information, thereby helping to advocate for the health and well being of children.
