Currently a senior research associate at St. Michael’s Hospital, Dr. Allan specializes in arrhythmia research with a focus on sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in the young. She has over 14 years of experience in both in-hospital and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitation research. She is the Project Manager and co-investigator for the Canadian Sudden Cardiac Arrest Network (C-SCAN), a national registry of sudden cardiac arrests. In 2018, Dr. Allan co-founded CARE (Cardiac Arrest Response and Education), a grass roots organization made up of survivors of SCA, families who have lost a loved one to SCA, scientists, cardiologists and 6 paramedic organizations. Together with Heart and Stroke and the Red Cross, CARE’s mission is to increase survival from SCA through various community-based initiatives, including raising awareness of SCA, mandating CPR and AED training for all kids and increasing accessibility to AEDs.
