The Young Hearts for Life (YH4L) Cardiac Screening Program identifies high school and college students at risk for sudden cardiac death.  Each week sudden cardiac death claims the lives of more than 60 young adults in the United States.  Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and in Illinois.

Young Hearts for Life mission is:

  • To offer FREE EKGs  to screen all students (not just athletes) for conditions which could lead to Sudden Cardiac Death.

  • To educate the community about Sudden Cardiac Death and what can be done to prevent it.

  •  To help schools/trainers prepare an Emergency Action Plan on how to handle a cardiac emergency.

  •  To provide families who have lost a child or sibling with support through interaction with other families facing the same unimaginable loss.
