Simon’s Heart is offering free heart screenings for any student aged 12 – 19. The screening will take place at Cherokee High School on Saturday, April 26. There is no cost for the screening. Donations are encouraged.

Sudden cardiac arrest is the #1 cause of death of student athletes and takes the lives of thousands of children every year. An ECG exam, when coupled with a medical history and physical, is shown to be more effective at detecting heart conditions, than physical exam alone.

The screening is intended for students who have never received an ECG exam or been examined by a cardiologist. While this screening is not available at most pediatric offices, it is NOT a substitute for annual pediatric wellness visits.

To register, you will need to complete consent, medical and family history forms. This process takes less than five minutes.
