The campus community at Florida State University is encouraged to seek “regular heart screenings” after the university acquired 51 new defibrillators and 300 free ECG screenings to students on Friday.

“To educate people on the importance of heart screenings and how to help someone experiencing cardiac arrest, the Florida State University Congress of Graduate Students (COGS) is hosting the inaugural TOM Project health initiative,” according to the news release.

“The TOM Project is a student-led initiative in honor of the late Toluwani “Tom” Idowu. Idowu was a creative writing major and member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity who passed away at the age of 22 in April 2020 due to sudden cardiac arrest. After his passing, Idowu’s friends and family rallied with FSU students to create the TOM Project and educate people on the importance of heart screenings and how to help someone experiencing cardiac arrest.”

The inaugural event was held in the Globe Auditorium, located at 110 S. Woodward Ave on Friday.

“The TOM Project has grown into one of the largest FSU student-led and student-funded projects and has raised more than $200,000. These funds will cover the purchase and installation of 51 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) across FSU’s campus, as well as 300 free electrocardiogram (ECG) screenings for students and training for 1,500 students on how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR),” said FSU.

Some have questioned the timing of the new defibrillator and regular heart screenings after the Florida Surgeon General’s warning concerning the increased risk of cardiac-related death among males aged 18–39 due to the Covid vaccination.

Earlier this month, Florida Surgeon General released a shocking report. According to Dr. Joseph Ladapo, there was an 84% increase in the incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. That is a huge number!

Dr. Ladapo recommended that young males from 18 to 39 refrain from taking the COVID Vaccine.
