Why are using that y fi atlanta heart association is the charity this year.
What will be going on with the phones that we all do and we donate to the charity sew,
jodi i was just curious how did you come about the american heart association,
i will that shit we had a director named tom who passed away last year before dragon con and he's gonna a director with us for a very long time
and um dragon con wanted to look for a charity is that i would speak to honoring him and we,
they came up with the american heart association and of course i would like to focus on them you know charities that are in our area that help our community crawl and and would like to get back to that so we came up
yeah atlanta area american heart association young that were part me webster,
that's great and that was tom trainer who died last year he was over the comics.
At work and so he had heart disease is what you died from you but i just want to ask christian what does the atlanta heart association do i need how are you all involved in.

[5:20] Helping at all have healthy heart so big picture.
The mission of the american heart association is to be a relentless for a world of longer healthier lives so at the end of the day were trying to allow and.
Give people more life to live their best lives every single day doing the things i enjoy with the people who break up the cool thing about.
You know here in atlanta.
We are backed by international organization and you know we found in billions of dollars in research research and medical advancement in technology advancement and you know.
She degree and really really pushing the mission on healthier lives but the exciting thing is that we also get to do this work here locally and what are we you know how are we impacting our local community to allow people right here in atlanta
did you just snap me know the dates the number of heart disease is number one killer worldwide stroke is number two that's seventeen million people a year,
so i'm really really focus on and physical health but also how does that play into our mental and emotional health as well.

[6:34] What is that really important both my father and my mother had a triple bypass because their help,
add determination that the webex thanks for thirty years do not smoke it's terrible for you.

[6:51] And so yeah hearing more about this and how to live cheap living and having your best life.

i'm looking at things like food access looking at things like access to healthcare in partnering with georgia farmers' market association right now for pop up farmers market in bringing healthy
producers to areas that don't have access because of
transfer t-shirt and your other things that on don't allow them to get to grocery stores like maybe you and i would be able to very easily do
what is a really big thing especially atlanta even though we do have a great.

[8:31] Yeah public transit with marta with the buses and the train the issue is still there are few desserts in atlanta and it is very difficult to go to the grocery store and it's difficult always sometimes make those,
choices to confirm so that we make good choices we can somebody on volunteer religion tweet said that sometimes,
yeah you know i got out i love you i love me some cheesy blue skies i need help i love these boots but hey i am honest if there is an apple there is also eating apple.
Search oyo little tiny bit of cheese and apple that i don't think that counts as a meal does it i just like his email but what's an apple.

which we have a lot of creativity you know within the drag and family as an volunteers to people that just come and this is an area that week and be creative and ahead and come.
I'm forward like i have a there's an artist called the happy little tired and i just place because plays bob ross

I know how it feels outside and i really like to be able to bring forth the create a remedy.

[15:29] What is exactly what i am christian but have you ever been to dragon con not trying to get just very good question i need to atlanta in december so this will be my first one
how are the products thursday we'll be at
hey how much is great your thursday is everybody's just getting everything started but you will see a lot of costumes in a lot of things going on so that would be awesome i can or the best first impression on thursday right
yeah usually because you're not too tired yet the stairs and sticky yet huh,
drop cokes and diet cokes all over the place of the thursday be great that is awesome.
I am has gotten this money that we're gonna come people every dollar is matched up to a hundred,
television by dragon show you give a dollar that's actually two dollars from u. at the atlanta heart association to do.
What are some of the projects that will be maybe this money will go to NAU thought about researching there any special things that you re looking at that this would be a real help for.

[16:44] Yeah i'm actually can i talk about two things that we have had going on here it that when is that one of them.
Reach is a high school girls that are interested in stem courier steam careers
yeah we'd we know that there is a big,
what's the number of girls when fingering interesting yours and you think about twenty thirty forty years down the road
that's gonna be a problem that sweet think about hold shift and i'm just the population shift as well.
So i'll be bringing together about sixty girls throughout the state of georgia and i basically do different breakout sessions all on the different science technology
engineering arts and math and it's really really powerful program on one of the story is that i lot of a teacher
you have been and are there prior came up to us this year inside.

[17:47] When is my students last year wasn't really sure what you wanna do she was you nothing really that excited about applying to colleges she came here and so excited,
and which is your guidance counselor what do i need to do that i want to go into engineering she ended up in falling and getting accepted to georgia tech,
she was and her first in her first semester and so that was a really cool story for us,
here is what happened and how this girl just.
Who is now pursuing a career and can change the world one day.

[18:27] Up everything good can you open it gets me no yes yes you know you late.
A really cool story to hear and i'm just no in bed so much was changed and she's gonna change the world one day.
I'm looking for a good time is so how we all have to do it and that is very poor.

[18:50] I absolutely another thing that all share that in business been
programs that have been feeling for over forty years in sr our kids heart challenge you to recognize jump for jump rope for heart in business is really educated you know there's elementary school kids
i'm in hell are you in in walnut send specifically in our health but now im kind of going back to you,
that mental health news it's really about the whole child and your kids these days.
Parents worry about their safety person for what is the worry about bullying and you know how to use to be number one it's kind of your not number one anymore i'm.
And so did really use this curriculum and working with the teachers working with the schools that of course we still want kids together sixty minutes of physical activity everyday but also
what is your good deeds you've done
no are you showing up and really just did the concept of a whole child in the programming guide isn't schools all throughout the state of georgia united states.

[19:59] Alexa tell you that is really i remember jump rope for heart my sister did it every year when she was in middle school up through high school.
Are they good at and it was great because i would there that would allow around our neighborhood and got money for john did you check where is that still going on for your kids,
i need sleep for our kids i was only in only a naam,
elementary school elementary yeah this is good people are still doing i love that kind of whole kid.
Focus that is that report right now if you absolutely un in regards to research i know dimensions,
the trains that will be happening i'm really learning stats ninety percent of people who have a car day after i don't survive.
Like i said that's pretty crazy testing great,
you need to get the education out there so people can assist when somebody is in that kinda distressed.
Yeah me in the bystander CPR can increase somebody's,
chance of living by three times and so it is critical that we trained as many people as possible
i'm so that you know about something that we're constantly working on your company's dinner supporters to the schools through partnerships like there's
i'm but it is far is research we actually just had something recently an
focus specifically on why do cardiac arrest happen.

[21:26] You are something we can see that we can see the reason why but in many people
it's just unknown it's an electrical issue you know i have a friend of mine who is a survivor that's forty years old.
Very healthy man playing soccer and went down by still don't know why he's gonna to be actress together once again you know he had little is little implant,
i bought a pretty scary thing when you're forty two years old in the best shape of your life you don't know why and so you know part of it is what are we doing
educating on prevention,
educating people to be life savers i'm but then you know that some stuff that we just dont know and so you know is that
yes shipping and the dollar here already doing the texts to if i'm thirsty the types of things that you're feeling that michelle will be working heart association four.

[22:23] That is excellent that is so great any ideas where i did know that ninety percent oh my goodness yeah terribly hi number and as someone who is CPR certified it's not that hard people search ryan.
I am cpr and aed those up.
Arena see the film the latechurch yes i am very important since i was seventeen oh okay
so i'm gonna need a refresher every so,
yeah i heard that part and that can be done in five minutes there's actually exhausting the atlanta airport for anyone
why you need and let them know you are CPR on a man again with the touchscreen it gives you delete bio feedback saying that your depression start sleeping out there fast enough
but the other kinda can i hear you talk about people who were trained hands,
certified can get CPR yourself like it really should be a responsibility for all of us
can you make sure everyone around us knows and it's so easy now it's only
can confessions what's two things you call nine one one and the charger fast in the center of the chest so removing a barrier.
Yes some people are hesitant go get milk to melt a dance into another thing that.
The american heart association your donors field was the research showing that.

[23:51] The compression are more important there is enough oxygen that it will get better it will be fine until matt arrives just,
call nine one one and put it back.
Can you get i'm trying to figure remember i thought i was staying alive but there is this actually compress the tell me what training i can process
along without reloading it was just the right thing what if i was saying like who did it done done done that,
no say it out loud to really get it so that it's really any song between hundred and hundred twenty beats
just been staying alive but you can do it to you have a different kind we actually to playlist on our.
Is there a holiday are you to play less with all these different songs beyonce hello there yeah i'm in san na pandora pandora the yes a playlist as well.

[24:51] John is also in the background doing her shit but i will do it too
yeah you do when you really need to come to drink on the patio light to am in the morning are there anymore again turn the volume
yes and i don't like them by not being at eight am cruz on friday morning
what action actually probably needed coming saturday the understanding is the best and saturday night three eight hey so that's get an alarm,
show judy utah having a place where people can learn CPR where is gonna be a dragon well i think that still in flats at the moment
up on the app on the webpage you have skorts hey can ever believe you i make sure that like good asian or something
who are visiting the fan table for the american heart association set up there
they will have some interesting things that the table and you can learn more about it and i am sure that they will have the information as to where we can learn more
what's up.
And that is what i need to anger by there any pick up information is that every year when i meant dragon i'm going to run my hotels now who did that table to see.
What you're doing and together some information it's really good and you know not.

[26:18] I think weve all had family but somehow or close friends.
This is an issue for and then we have to why.

[26:27] And you say christians sometimes it just happens which is.

[26:32] Do you know even if you're doing everything you're supposed to do that that person it would've played soccer with getting many many more than sixty min of exercise or whatever so it'll terrifying so we need to.
Skip that no one had the education yesterday but no it's not
one thing that come about be by me being the director of the charity events is what we were announced what our charity was for this year and we had an outpouring of emails and personal contacts with different people that tell us how much it
means to them that we chose the american heart association and then they're really there other family heat trials and regulations that they had to go through overcome and it's really touching
set find all these connections umm and how much.
If this is something that connects lol and that we should be aware of,
that's yeah tell.
Ok suggest a show you would like us.
I'm so so just to clarify cuz i'm not sure i heard this christian the money that he is actually coming from dragon gone.
Add to the atlanta heart associates table that stays all within the area where.

[27:57] So it meant a lot of our programs are comprehensive programs that sp and nationally but the program so i talked about today because are are what are being fueled here in atlanta.
Next song we're clear what i would the black money comes.
