Young Hearts for Life is excited to be back at St. Laurence High School on October 5th to screen all students for heart conditions which could lead to Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD).

WHY HAVE YOUR CHILD GET AN ECG????

* 60 Young adults die each week from SCD. Often the first symptom is death.
* Sports physicals will only detect 4% of students at risk for SCD. ECGs may detect 70% of students at risk for SCD.
* This test is painless, quick, and FREE
* This test would normally cost you $75-150.
* Results are only shared with parents
* Specially trained Cardiologists on-site for screening
* TEAM PODZ and Fr. Norm Trela are sponsoring your school to bring this lifesaving test to all your children FREE of charge.
