The Self Regional Heart and Vascular Center is launching a community-based Automatic External Defibrillator, or AED, grant program to train and equip community members in case of a cardiac emergency. For more information about the program, see here.
For 2017, 10 AEDs are available through this grant program. All types of organizations are encouraged to apply, regardless of size or service, however submission of the application does not guarantee approval of the AED. Only organizations or non-profits located in the Lakelands region of SC (Greenwood, Laurens, Edgefield, Abbeville, McCormick, Saluda and Newberry counties) are eligible for the grant.
Grant applications will be reviewed based on criteria that will be set forth by our AED program committee comprised of physicians, community liaisons, and members of our Heart and Vascular Center.
Applications will be accepted through September 1, 2017.
