Eastside Catholic School and Eastside Catholic Boosters will host a youth heart screening event for students at Eastside Catholic, Skyline and Eastlake high schools.
The free event, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 22, consists of a heart health survey for signs and symptoms and a family history of a cardiac condition, blood pressure and physical examination and ECG. An on-site echocardiogram is conducted in cases with a positive finding on history, physical examination, or ECG.
All results are reviewed by cardiologists and sports physicians experienced in cardiac screens.
