Healthy Heart Collaborative


Healthy Heart CollaborativeIn 2017 the Healthy Heart Collaborative was formed between the Omar Carter Foundation, Blue Cross of NC Institute for Health and Human Services, and the Appalachian Regional Hospital System. The collaborative focuses on cardiac health with goals of educating and advancing sudden cardiac death awareness as well as the promotion of cardiovascular health in the high country community.


Demonstrations to learn how to save a life through hands only CPR occur regularly on campus and in the community. If you are interested in having a group, class or organization participate in a brief training, please contact Mary Sheryl Horine at
