UC Health, who initially cared for Hamlin, is proud to continue to stand alongside Hamlin and his family to help raise awareness of cardiac arrest.
In the year since Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest live on Monday Night Football, his remarkable recovery has inspired thousands of people across the nation and Greater Cincinnati to become trained in life-saving CPR and AED techniques. His commitment to raising awareness of cardiac arrest and helping others, especially young athletes, has been an inspiration to us all at UC Health.
"It is remarkable to see the influence that Damar has had on our community and the rest of the country," said Timothy Pritts, MD, section chief of general surgery at UC Health. "His dedication to raising awareness about CPR and AED education is truly making a difference, and we are incredibly proud to witness his efforts."
Over the past year, “The Damar Effect” has ignited a substantial increase in CPR and AED trainings, spurred advancements in cutting-edge equipment, and even catalyzed legislative changes.
