Date:1/8/2008

Des Moines-based Group Will Work Statewide to Prevent Sudden Cardiac Arrest Through Public Education and Advocacy

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association (SCAA) announced today that it has incorporated Iowa AED Access for All as an affiliate as it builds a network of local organizations to help carry out its mission of preventing sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
