Join us in Millersburg, Pennsylvania, for a FREE Protect This Heart Screening on November 4th, 2023. This screening, made possible by the MITER Foundation, is available to all students aged 8-25 who have not** had their heart checked before. **Students who had their hearts checked previously but were later diagnosed with COVID are also encouraged to register.
Sudden cardiac arrest takes the lives of thousands of children every year. It is the #1 cause of death for student athletes. It kills more adults than lung cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS, combined. But, that’s it.
Simon’s Heart believes that all students should have their hearts screened. It should be a cardiac standard of care. And it should be a free heart test.
Research shows that cardiac screenings – when coupled with a good medical history and physical exam – are much more effective at detecting heart conditions than a history and physical alone. A heart screening can do more to prevent sudden cardiac arrest than just questions and listening to the heart.
