Studies show that the best way to protect your child from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is with a physical exam, thorough medical history AND an ECG exam. At a Simon’s Fund Heart Screening, your child will receive all three (our heart screenings are reserved for students that have not been diagnosed with a heart condition or treated by a cardiologist).
Central Bucks West (March 15, 2014)
We are heading back to Central Bucks School District. If you are between the ages of 10 – 19, we hope that you’ll come get your heart checked. Central Bucks South had 300 students attend. How many do you think West can turn out? The screening will take place at Central Bucks West High School located at 375 W Court Street in Doylestown. Registration will open on February 18th.
Nashville (April 5, 2014)
This year, we are traveling to Nashville to host a screening during the weekend of the Women’s Final Four. We’ll be working with doctors from Vanderbilt. Check back in the coming weeks for more details about location.
Mother’s Day Screening (May 10, 2014)
Sudden cardiac arrest is not just an adult thing. Heart disease is a family problem. We are hosting our first ever heart screening for moms and kids. If you have children between the ages of 10 – 19, we hope that you’ll bring them out to this important family health event. Registration will open in April and we’ll be conducting the screening in Plymouth Meeting.
