About this event

Thank you, ARC East 7th, for hosting the Free Teen Heart Screening!

COVID-19 INFORMATION:  Most health facilities require patients and visitors to wear a face covering/mask. We will follow the health facility guidelines in place at the time of this Free Teen Heart Screening event. Expect an email from info@champhearts.org a few days ahead of the screening with the latest arrival instructions. Please limit your family's attendance to one parent/guardian with the teen(s) to be screened and adhere to social distancing measures.


♥ Championship Hearts screens teens, ages 14-18, for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). Generally, one screening after age 15 is sufficient, unless cardiac symptoms are present. ♥ HCM causes a thickening of the heart wall, and can lead to obstruction of blood flow and an erratic heartbeat. ♥ HCM typically does not present any symptoms. ♥ HCM is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young people. ♥ HCM effects roughly 1 in 500.

♥ The Championship Hearts screening does not check for causes of heart murmurs.


♥ A parental waiver must be signed in order for the student to receive a screening. ♥ Students should wear loose fitting clothing. ♥ Screening includes a 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) and a limited 2-D Echocardiogram (ECHO). ♥ The screening process typically takes approximately 20 minutes per student. NOTE: AVERAGE WAIT TIME BETWEEN TESTING STATIONS VARIES. ♥ Screenings are offered at no charge. For those choosing to make an optional donation, $35 does help offset the cost to screen a student. ♥ Students may have the option to participate in the Texas Adolescent Athlete Heart Screening Registry (TAAHSR) research study. To participate, students and parents are informed of data collected, can ask questions, and must sign appropriate Consent documents. The study receives oversight from the Baylor College of Medicine Institutional Review Board.
