Our business is a collaboration between two sisters: Tracy McArthur and Tonya Brown and both are Co-Owners. Tracy McArthur is founder and Co-Owner of PQRST Center for EKG Training. She is also an Assistant Instructor of the Community Healthcare Workers Program at Cleveland State University. She served as a Paramedic for the City of Cleveland-Division of Emergency Medical Service for 13 years. Tracy learned that heart disease is the number 1 killer for all Americans, but African American are at greater risk of getting heart disease. Understanding the disparity of heart health within her community, she wanted to make change through education. Tracy believes she can change lives one heartbeat at a time.
