Screening and Prevention
To prevent sudden cardiac death in young athletes and identify pre-existing
risk factors before they become critical cardiac events, we have partnered
with RWJBarnabas Health's
Matthew J. Morahan, III Center for Athletes to provide free cardiac screening for children and teens. Screening includes
the American Heart Association-recommended personal and family history
questionnaire, EKG and consultation with a pediatric cardiologist. More
than 1,500 youngsters have been screened.
