Free Teen Heart Screening Coming to Pleasanton

March 13, 2016

logoIt is estimated 1 in 500 school-aged children suffer an undiagnosed heart defect, which can lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death. A typical annual physical does not screen for advanced heart abnormalities. This does not take the place of your annual or pre-participation sports physical.

Stanford Health Care – ValleyCare are offering free heart screenings (students ages 12-25 attending schools in the Tri-Valley area) on Sunday, March 20th, 2016, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Thomas Hart Middle School (4433 Willow Road, Pleasanton). Screenings take 60-90 minutes (wait times may vary) and include a health history questionnaire review, an EKG test, and if warranted, an echocardiogram. The entire process is non-invasive—no needles or x-ray exposure—and each teen’s confidentiality, privacy and individual modesty is respected throughout all aspects of the screening.

Your child must be registered in advance and bring their pre-screening packet and permission/release forms to the event. Please register and find forms at Registration is open from February 10, 2016 to noon on March 18th, 2016 and is limited to 750 students.
