    In health care, interventions can make a huge difference. Can you reduce deaths related to gun violence by teaching more people first aid? If you get a person into treatment right after their first psychotic episode – will they have a better outcome? Or – if we can all recognize the rare symptoms associated with heart attacks in women, can we save more lives? 

    Sit down for an intervention with The Pulse.
