Family & Friends® CPR – Adult, Infant, and Child

Update on August 12, 2020

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our Family & Friends CPR classes have been suspended for the remainder of the 2020 year. The health and safety of our participants and instructors is our top priority and we hope to continue our classes in 2021. For any questions or information on other CPR-related resources, you’re welcome to contact us at

Children are not miniature adults. This is true throughout healthcare and medicine, and lifesaving CPR is no exception.

Pediatric CPR was developed with this fact in mind, and this is why Children’s Hospital & Medical Center offers the American Heart Association’s Family & Friends® CPR program.
