NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Feb. 19, 2024 - PRLog -- Dr. Katherine Y. Brown, founder of Learn CPR America, LLC, has been recognized with the ReSS Champion Award by the American Heart Association at the International Resuscitation Science Symposium, celebrating her significant contributions to resuscitation science and her role as a global CPR spokesperson over more than three decades.

Beginning her CPR education journey at age 16 alongside her mother, a nurse, Katherine has been a dedicated volunteer with the American Heart Association. Her journey from establishing the first freestanding CPR company on Chicago's Southside, Dr. Katherine and Associates CPR Courses, to later founding Learn CPR America, LLC, highlights her commitment. Through her direct efforts, over 300,000 individuals have been personally trained by her in lifesaving CPR techniques at no cost, reaching diverse audiences in various settings, from parks and housing projects to conferences, churches, board rooms,  and biker bars. There are few places where she has not taught CPR.

Katherine's belief in the accessibility of CPR training is evident in her statement, "If you can teach a child to ride a bike, I can teach them CPR, and that's what I want to do." Her mission is to ensure essential lifesaving skills through CPR training are accessible to everyone.

The ReSS Champion Award emphasizes Katherine's role as a global CPR spokesperson and her commitment to advancing CPR education through innovative community engagement. Her work saves lives and instills confidence in individuals and communities to act during emergencies.

Notably in 2023, Dr. Katherine Y. Brown made history as the first African American woman to receive the American Heart Association's Martin E. Simmons Award, and was celebrated during National CPR Awareness Month. Her expertise has led her to teach on prominent stages, including national conferences and television, and through NPR, radio, and webinars, amplifying her life-saving message across various media channels.

Katherine's impact of leading with heart extends to her family, with her oldest son Anthony pursuing a career in nursing, her daughter (student doctor) Sydney in medical school aspiring to become a physician, her son Irving a college graduate involved in health education, and her youngest son, Robert (a high school student at Father Ryan), aiming to become a medical pilot. This reflects the family's collective dedication to health and service.
