Heart Screening for Youth
Thousands of youth die annually when their heart unexpectedly stops due to an undetected condition that causes Sudden Cardiac Arrest, 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 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 1000 youth, ages 12-25. RSVP: epsavealife.org/register.
