Welcome to the Summit Online Program & Planner!  

As Program Chair, it’s my honor to welcome you to Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit 2021, Dec. 7-10. This biennial conference is an important opportunity for so many reasons — learning, training, discussion and discovery. Even more than that? Summit 2021 is about connecting — or, this year, reconnecting. We’ve all been separated as a result of the pandemic, but in December, we have a chance to come together in beautiful, sunny San Diego to recharge, relax, and, of course, reconnect.

Wherever you are (or find yourself) along the chain of survival, you’ll find insight, value and inspiration at Summit 2021. We’re all in the fight to improve SCA survival rates together. And that’s one of the things I love so much about the Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit — everyone who’s passionate about resuscitation has a seat at the table. Sure, you can speak directly with some of the biggest names in resuscitation, education and implementation as you receive key scientific updates from the American Heart Association and American Red Cross, not to mention additional insight about where we’re collectively headed and how we’ll get there from some truly incredible speakers.

Summit 2021 is also where you’ll hear inspirational survivor stories; meet the trainers and community advocates who are leading their own grassroots resuscitation initiatives; get hands-on experience with the latest lifesaving technology; and celebrate our own superheroes — survivors; EMS and public safety responders; and front-line healthcare workers.

It’s been my absolute pleasure to work with some of the brightest minds in resuscitation to create a multi-day experience that provides the latest in the art and science of resuscitation in an exciting, fun and innovative way.

I hope you’ll join me Dec. 7-10 at Summit 2021. You deserve this invaluable learning opportunity (not to mention gorgeous San Diego weather in December!) Looking forward to reconnecting with you!
