Providing schools with health education resources
Children spend much of their time in school. That’s why we’ve created innovative programs that allow us to partner with teachers and counselors to help deliver important information students need to grow up safe and healthy.

Project ADAM helps schools prepare for sudden cardiac arrest
Project ADAM aids schools across the nation in implementing public access defibrillation programs through education and other support. We help determine the need for automated external defibrillators (AEDs), secure funding, provide program implementation templates and assist with marketing.
In a situation where someone is in sudden cardiac arrest, every second counts. This project is credited with helping to save dozens of lives across the country, including students, by ensuring access to AEDs and individuals prepared to use them.
Project ADAM was started after a series of sudden deaths among high school athletes in southeast Wisconsin. The death of Adam Lemel, a 17-year-old Whitefish Bay, Wis., high school student, spurred his parents and childhood friend to work with the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Herma Heart Center to create this program. ADAM stands for Automated Defibrillators in Adam’s Memory.
