THA #70 - 911, Help Me: A Cardiac Survivor's Tale of Dispatchers and Defibrillation
Service to our country in the US NAVY and graduate level studies in business earned Rob Hoadley the titles of Veteran & Master of Business Administration.
A dedicated husband and father, Rob is drawn to serve our cause because he is the Survivor of multiple Sudden Cardiac Arrests (5x in 2011, 2x in 2018, and 16 ICD shocks in 2021…23 Total!). This has earned him the title of… Survivor.
Rob currently helps place Life Saving AEDs wherever they are needed. Using his valuable knowledge and experience in the world of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Rob is an accomplished Keynote and Public Speaker and Advocate for SCA awareness, AEDs, and CPR. Delivering a message of resilience, strength, vulnerability, and yes…Survival, Rob has motivated and inspired countless people.
Rob is a member of an International Advisory Group and Public Research Collaborative working to develop and validate a new Patient Reported Outcome Measure for Sudden Cardiac Arrest survivors, including their families and/or caregivers. This collaborative has published the first of its anticipated bodies of work.
As a member of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation Advisory Council, Rob will bring all of his earned “titles” to the table to focus his passion on helping save more lives from SCA. More specifically, Rob will help SCAF assist fellow survivors in the sixth link in our Chain of Survival, Recovery.
Rob is happily married to his beautiful and strong wife Dori. He is also the proud father of two beautiful and equally strong young women, Kristin and Laurin Hoadley.”
