Albany, New York – On the same day that American Heart Association volunteers from points far and wide in New York came to Albany to convince their legislators of the merits of CPR instruction in schools, they also honored a 30+-year volunteer with the organization.

“We named Bob Elling our New York State Advocate of the Year for his efforts to advance our public policy agenda,” said Michael Weamer, executive vice president, Founders Affiliate, American Heart Association. “Bob’s efforts over the years helped pass legislation to clarify that the Good Sam Law applies to all AED users, thereby alleviating liability concerns. This year, Bob is a driving force behind our efforts to make sure that all students learn CPR prior to graduation. Bob has been a tireless advocate for the AHA. He has met with lawmakers, recruited numerous volunteers and regularly been the face of the AHA in the media.”
