Cardinal Commitment


Multi-quarter part-time
Education & Youth Development, 

Perfusion is a student-run organization dedicated to educating schools and communities about cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and basic life-saving skills. Through free outreach classes and CPR workshops, our mission is two-fold: to equip individuals in the low-resource areas nearby Stanford with the ability to save lives during emergency situations and to empower Stanford students to become confident public health educators.

Perfusion organizes numerous programs and initiatives with Stanford student volunteers. Many of these are day-long events called “outreach days” where we go out into the community to teach. Other initiatives include year-long legislative work in order to bring about substantive policy change for issues such as the need for a CPR education mandate in all schools.

There is an application process to join Perfusion. To learn more and to apply, visit our website.

Service required to fulfill a Cardinal Commitment: Students interested in making a Cardinal Commitment through Perfusion can (1) get involved in teaching regular outreach CPR classes and workshops at low-resource schools and communities. In addition, (2) students can delve into other tasks on a daily or weekly basis, such as helping to prepare the content material for upcoming outreach days, prepping equipment (e.g. CPR dummies, AEDs, etc.), and assisting in internal training sessions to ready student volunteers. Furthermore, students can (3) work with the legislative advocacy team on year-long public policy projects.
