CPR training at Gee's Clippers

Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) teamed up with Milwaukee Fire Department EMS to offer CPR training to barbers at Gee's Clippers and Beauty Salon on Monday, Jan. 9.

According to The Froedtert & MCW, most cardiac arrests happen in homes and public settings. By learning hands-on CPR, more people can help someone in need and make a difference in their communities. 

"Just in case there's an emergency, the individuals in the shop would know how to react. There's studies that say that people that have hands-on CPR, CPR in general in the first couple minutes of their cardiac arrest, it can increase their chance of living," said Jasmine Johnikin a community inures from Froedtert & MCW.

The Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network started providing nursing services to Gee's MKE Wellness Clinic last year. The clinic is inside Gee's Clippers Barber and Beauty Salon on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Milwaukee. 

The big goal is to meet community members where they are to bring them the health services and resources they need in a comfortable setting.
