Save A Life Heart Screening on Nov. 8, 2015
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in youth under 25 and the #1 killer of student athletes, but heart screenings are not part of regular youth exams. The Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation has provided more than 17,000 free heart screenings for youth age 12 to 25, finding about 1 in 100 at risk from an undetected abnormality or risk factor.
Students 12 to 19 are invited to get a free heart screening on Sunday, November 8 at Francis Parker School. Parents simply register at EPSaveALife.org to download a screening packet that you complete and bring to the event.
