HeartSafe Home was created and shaped by the OHCA Learning Community in June 2022 as an intervention to raise awareness and capacity to respond to sudden cardiac arrest occurring in the home across underserved minority communities in Washtenaw and Livingston counties.
This initiative is funded by the American Heart Association and is part of the Michigan Resuscitation Innovation and Science Enterprise (M-RISE) research program.
We use a Learning Health System (LHS) approach to increase survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) in Washtenaw and Livingston Counties, Michigan. We invite community members, OHCA survivors, family, and friends, first responders, health care providers, and anyone interested in improving OHCA survival in the region. Come JOIN US!

The OHCA Learning Health Community is a key partner in the University of Michigan's M-RISE Population Science Project. M-RISE is a three-project new research program, with the mission to discover, translate and implement innovative therapies focused on preventing brain damage caused by cardiac arrest.
