Sudden Cardiac Death in the Young

St. Vincent’s Medical Center Listen & Learn Lecture Series

Dear Parents, Coaches & Nurses,


According to the American Heart Association, athletic sports training and competition can increase the risk of sudden cardiac death in youth with underlying undiagnosed heart disease. The possibility that young, well trained athletes at the high school and collegiate level could suffer from one of these episodes seems incomprehensible. Join Dr. Alon Ronen, MD to discuss the most recent research findings and the most effective risk-detection, diagnosis and treatment strategies. Learn how to prevent this tragedy from happening to your family at St. Vincent’s Medical Center Listen & Learn Lecture Series.
