PTA’s FREE Saving Hearts Cardiac Screening online registration is now open!
As we continue to support student health, our ConejoCouncil of PTA’s invite all students and athletes ages 12-18 to participate. The event will be held on Saturday, November 10th at the Thousand Oaks Teen Center (1375 E. Janss Rd, Thousand Oaks, CA) between 9am and 3pm.
These screenings consist of a 3 step process:
-Preliminary health history questionnaire
-An echocardiogram if the cardiologists deems it necessary upon reviewing the patient’s health history and EKG.
EKGs are administered by Saving Hearts Foundation members and the results are reviewed by cardiologists. The process generally only takes thirty minutes. Male and female screening rooms will be separate, allowing for confidentiality and individual privacy to be respected during the screening process. Patients will be notified immediately of any concerns.
