Hiram College will receive an AED Unit to be placed in the library main entrance, thanks to the service of seven students and two faculty and staff members.
The students, Christine Kohls-Hunder, Director of Corporate, Government and Foundation Relations, and Mary Quade, Assistant Professor of English, participated in the KEN Heart Foundation’s North Coast Run for Hearts last month. In return, the organization is providing Hiram the automated external defibrillator, which is used to diagnose and treat life-threatening conditions that lead to cardiac arrest.
This is the second consecutive year Hiram has participated. The AED Unit the College earned last year is installed inside the entrance to East Hall.
This service supports Hiram’s civic engagement goals, as well as the nursing department’s goal to have an AED Unit placed in each building on campus.
