What is the Young Hearts for Life screening?
YH4L is a FREE heart screening called an electrocardiogram (ECG) to identify high school students at risk for Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD). Detailed information on the program is found on this Parent Packet link
More than 60 young adults die each week in the United States from SCD. Since 2006, YH4L has screened over 280,000 students and has identified more than 3,000 with previously undiagnosed heart conditions. Please be aware that repeat ECG testing is recommended every two (2) years.
A simple, painless, and non-invasive ECG can detect approximately 70% of the heart conditions that are associated with SCD, while a pre-participation physical can only detect 4% of these conditions. The false positive rate for the YH4L program is less than 2%. Additional evaluation and testing by your physician may be recommended based on the results of the screening.
All students will hear information in their Wellness classes on January 20 about our upcoming Young Hearts for Life screening event to be held on February 14. We encourage every family to register their child for this life-saving screening.
Young Hearts for Life - We need family and community volunteers!
We are looking for many volunteers to assist with our YH4L screening event on February 14. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age (current high school students are not eligible to be a volunteer). Shifts are available in the morning, afternoon, or full day. Continental breakfast items and lunch is provided to volunteers.
Volunteers assist with checking in students for their appointment, helping get them to each of the stations, assisting with the ECG process, etc. So far, we have about 35 volunteers signed up, but we are looking to have nearly 200! Please consider donating some of your time to this important health and wellness event!
Save the Date: Winter Gala February 25
