St. Jude Medical, a St. Paul, Minn.-based cardiovascular device manufacturer, has donated 200 laptop computers to the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC).  The donation will be utilized by the ABC’s community health education campaign, according to the Atlanta-based organization.

The computers will arrive pre-loaded with a series of educational videos on cardiac conditions and treatments, such as sudden cardiac arrest and the heart’s anatomy. The computers will be distributed to ABC-trained community health advocates who will use the computers and videos to increase awareness of cardiovascular diseases among minority populations in neighborhoods and cities served by the advocates, ABC said.
