Young Hearts for Life: October 7, 2021

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

We are pleased to bring the Young Hearts for Life® (YH4L) Cardiac Screening Program to Downers Grove North High School on October 7, 2021. All students whose parents authorize them to be tested will be screened. Please be aware that repeat ECG testing is recommended every two (2) years.

YH4L will provide this FREE heart screening called an electrocardiogram (ECG) to identify high school students at risk for sudden cardiac death and to increase the public's awareness of this issue. To date, more than 265,000 students have been screened as a result of YH4L and almost 3,000 students have been diagnosed with heart abnormalities, ranging from mild to life-threatening. More information about the screening can be found on the YH4L website (www.yh4l.org).

The Young Hearts For Life® Cardiac Screening is being provided this year to the students by Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, District 99 Education Foundation, District 99 and YH4L Donors.
