Downers Grove South High - Young Hearts for Life (YH4L)
Thursday, September 12, 2019
We are pleased to bring the Young Hearts for Life® (YH4L) Cardiac Screening Program to Downers Grove South HS on September 12, 2019. 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 over 230,000 students have been screened as a result of YH4L. 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 Good Samaritan Hospital, Kenneth Brooks Holland Memorial Fund, District 99 Education Foundation and YH4L Donors.
