The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association (SCAA) is an organization singularly focused on sudden cardiac arrest. SCAA identifies and unites survivors, those at risk of sudden cardiac arrest, as well as others who are interested in being advocates on SCAA issues in their communities and beyond. Our membership is dedicated to promoting solutions to prevent sudden cardiac death, including increased awareness, immediate bystander action, public access to defibrillation (PAD), cardiovascular disease prevention, and access to preventative therapies.
SCAA is a nonprofit, tax exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to SCAA are tax deductible.
We are governed by a Board of Directors and are counseled by a medical advisory board, composed of physicians and scientists well known for their practice and research in the area of SCA.
By sharing information, resources and experiences in promoting policy changes and community programs, SCAA aims to prevent loss of life from sudden cardiac arrest.
Mission: To combat the Sudden Cardiac Arrest crisis by eliminating preventable deaths and supporting those who have been affected.
Vision: To eliminate preventable deaths from sudden cardiac arrest by 2020.
