This is the image for the news article titled Med Student Wins 1st Place Nick Tome  is a freshman, medical professions student who recently submitted a essay regarding cardiac health to the Penn State Children's Hospital and American Heart Association. He won 1st place out of all submissions in South Central PA. Nick's essay focused on the need for high schoolers to receive mandatory CPR and First Aide training. He argues this training would change the total fatalities of people suffering cardiac arrest, as a shorter response time can make a huge difference in the end result or the amount of damage done to a victim. 

Nick will be honored on May 16th at the Penn State Children's Hospital. They will be honoring those students who won and have positively contributed to the promotion of cardiac health.
