FREE Youth and Young Adult Heart Screening
SAVE THE DATE! FREE YOUTH & YOUNG ADULT HEART SCREENING EVENT SRJC Petaluma, February 27, 2022
INVITED: All youth and young adults ages 12 to 25 are invited to participate in Sunday, February 27, 2022, 9:00 am – 2:30 pm Via Heart Project’s free heart screening event.
WHY: It is estimated that 1 in 300 children suffer from 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 screening does not take the place of your annual or pre-participation sports physical.
WHAT: Screenings take 60-90 minutes (wait times may vary). A team of medical volunteers, including cardiologists, sonographers, and nurses from Petaluma, Santa Rosa, and the Bay Area, will conduct a health history questionnaire review, an EKG test, and an echocardiogram. The entire process is non-invasive—no needles or x-ray exposure—and we ensure each teen’s confidentiality, privacy, and individual modesty is respected throughout all aspects of the screening.
HOW: All participants must be registered in advance. Registration is limited to 750 and will open 6 weeks prior to the event date. Check the VIA website for registration information https://viaheartproject.org/screenings/
WHEN: February 27, 2022 9:00 am – 2:30 pm
WHERE: SRJC Petaluma, 680 Sonoma Mountain Parkway, Petaluma, CA 94954
COST: Via Heart Project screenings are offered free of charge thanks to sponsors. Consider paying it forward to allow Via to keep saving young lives. Just $25 helps screen another teen. Donations may be made at the screening, during the online registration process, or at https://viaheartproject.org/donate/
