Youth, ages 12 to 25, are invited to get a free heart screening on Sunday, March 25 at Torrey Pines High School between 9 am and 3 pm.
The screening is offered by the Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation, which has screened over 26,000 teens for heart abnormalities that put about 1 in 300 students at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest - a leading cause of death under 25, and the #1 killer of student athletes. Heart screenings are not a part of annual checkups or pre-participation sports physicals, even though most heart conditions have no warning signs or unrecognized symptoms -- which is why Eric's Foundation screens for free.
Register at epsavealife.org/register/ and download a screening packet that you will complete and bring to the event. We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to screen your teen.
