    The Muslim Medical Association of Canada, Waterloo Masjid and Islamic Centre of Waterloo are partnering to bring LifeSavers, a workshop giving the community an introduction to CPR and an opportunity to learn essential lifesaving skills.

    We are actively recruiting MMAC staff physicians and trainees to help teach at stations, and medical students to assist with the event. Volunteering just a few hours of your time will make a tremendous difference to health outcomes! Trainers do NOT need to be formal ACLS certified trainers, as this course is for bystander CPR and other skills, not for official CPR certification purposes.
