Every year students die from sudden cardiac arrest. These deaths can be due to abnormal heart structure or abnormal rhythms. To help detect young people at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, a volunteer group of physicians and staff will conduct heart screenings* as a community service that will include:
    • Medical history review
    • Physician evaluation
    • Blood pressure check
    • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
    • V-scan quick-look echocardiogram
Each appointment will take approximately 60 minutes. Since there will be a limited number of screenings, registration is required. Please click on the registration link to schedule a screening time.

After you successfully register, please also download and complete the following paperwork, and return it with your child on the day of the screening. The link to download these forms will appear after you register.
    1. Completed Student/Family Health History Questionnaire signed by both a parent and the student
    2. Consent to Participate Form signed by a parent
    3. Genesys Health System’s Media Authorization Form (in case there is media coverage of the event)
If forms are missing or incomplete, we will be unable to screen your child.

The data we collect may be used by researchers to add to the scientific knowledge of sudden cardiac arrest in young athletes. The data will be reported anonymously, and student privacy and confidentiality will be maintained.

To register,
please complete our online form. For questions or more information, please call and leave a message at 1.855.GENESYS (1.855.436.3797). Your message will be responded to within the next day.

Funds for this event were made possible by the Affair of the Heart fundraiser.




*This screening attempts to identify any pre-existing conditions that could potentially increase the student‘s health risk as a result of vigorous physical activity and/or sports. The screening is not intended to be a part of or as a substitute for a more thorough examination of the student by his/her own physician in evaluating eligibility to participate in sports.
