Free Youth Heart Screening

screen your teen

Preventing Sudden Cardiac Arrest/Death in Youth! WHAT: Thousands of youth die annually when their heart unexpectedly stops due to an undetected condition that causes Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), a leading cause of death under 25 and the #1 killer of student athletes. The Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation has tried to combat this tragic loss of young lives by screening 23,000 hearts and counting, finding nearly 1 in 100 at risk from an undetected heart abnormality. Volunteers will screen upwards of 1,000 youth, ages 12-25 on Sunday, October 15th. The event is free, simply register at The Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation provides free heart screenings because they are not part of regular well-child exams or pre-participation sports physicals, even though many heart conditions often have no symptoms or unrecognized warning signs. We find 1-2% at risk at every screening, so each is literally a life-saving event. WHO: Youth & young adults, ages 12-25 WHEN: Sunday, October 15th, 2017, 9 am to 3 pm WHERE: Southwest High School- 1685 Hollister Ave. San Diego, CA 92154 REGISTER: MEDIA CONTACT: Sarah Thompson, Executive Director, Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation, 619.550.2129 or
