Thank you for joining us in San Diego!

In 2023, we witnessed a remarkable surge in awareness regarding sudden cardiac arrest, largely thanks to Damar Hamlin’s widely witnessed resuscitation during a Monday Night Football game and the NFL’s subsequent (and substantial) investment in improving SCA outcomes. The Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit played a crucial role in maintaining this momentum, evidenced by the caliber of our speakers, the enthusiasm of our attendees, and the support from our sponsors. We look forward to continuing this progress into 2024 and beyond.
