I had the opportunity to talk with survivor ambassador and board member from the South-Central NJ American Heart Association board of directors, Joan Acevedo, a resident of Freehold, who stopped by the Point studio.

Joan suffered a sudden cardiac arrest at age 39 and was revived by CPR and AEDs. She has been a spokesperson, survivor ambassador, and advocate for the American Heart Association for nearly 20 years. Check out our conversation in the video below.
