America will be conducting a Young Hearts Screening on Thursday, October 10th at Beresford
High School in its athletic training room.
Thousands of young people
needlessly die each year from Sudden Cardiac Death. This
potentially life-saving screening is $89, and is open to anyone
between the ages of 12-34, not just athletes. If
you have more than one child you would like screened, the second screening is
$44.50. The screening will include
an EKG, a limited echocardiogram, a health history, blood pressure check,
evaluation for Marfan syndrome, and review by a local board certified
The screening only takes 25
minutes and is easy and painless.
