Addison Trail to partner with Young Hearts for Life to provide free cardiac screenings for students

Addison Trail has again partnered with the Young Hearts for Life® (YH4L) Cardiac Screening Program, a not-for-profit organization, to offer electrocardiograms (ECGs) to identify high school students at risk for heart conditions that can cause sudden cardiac death (SCD).

More than 60 young adults die from SCD each week in the U.S., most without any warning signs. A simple, noninvasive ECG can detect about 70 percent of heart conditions that can cause SCD; a pre-participation can only detect about 4 percent of these conditions.

Edward-Elmhurst Health is generously sponsoring this free, quick and painless cardiac screening for all Addison Trail students. Addison Trail encourages all parents/guardians to take advantage of this program and to register your child today.
