Impact - to have a strong effect on someone or something.
On January 17, 2013, twenty-one year old Cory Joseph Wilson died as a result of a fatal heart arrhythmia. Regrettably, there was not an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) available to treat Cory at the time when he needed it the most.
It is the mission of the Cory Joseph Wilson Memorial Inc., that every institute of higher education should have a standardized emergency cardiac response team, as well as automated external defibrillators within a three minute distance to all campus locations. In addition, it stresses the need for college/university personnel to have, at a minimum, exposure to Hands Only CPR training, and supports mandated CPR training embedded in the college curriculum, such as in mandated physical education courses.
