Summary of project The need for BLS materials in Central Asia was brought to our attention by an AMSA member who had been working there.

So, we set up a box, so that 1st termers taking their CPR-certification exam could drop their BLS book off for donation before walking into the examination room.

The books will be used to help facilitate training for a program in community health improvement and disaster preparedness in Central Asia.
