Youth Heart Screenings

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. Is your daughter or son the 1 in 300 at risk? Get them a FREE heart screening at Sweetwater High School on Sunday, August 18. The Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation has provided over 27,000 heart screenings for youth age 12 to 25 to find undetected heart abnormalities.
