Athlete Heart Shield, Inc.

We have partnered with Athlete Heart Shield, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and screening for the conditions that lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death in children and student athletes, to establish the area€™s first full-time screening center for young athletes, ages 14-27.

It is known that around 1 out of every 100 children has an unknown heart condition. These heart conditions can go undetected under the current standard of care for routine medical check ups and school sports physicals.

Athlete Heart Shield, Inc. has developed an advanced heart screening protocol using specific testing and criteria that can help detect these silent and all too often deadly heart conditions. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading killer of student athletes in the USA every year.  Athlete Heart Shield has worked with industry leaders from around the country and world with one goal, that is to save lives.  The Athlete Heart Shield screening process has been developed by our team using advice from expert medical professionals from all over the country.

How It Works

  • Complete a Risk Assessment Questionnaire

  • Schedule your appointment, at which point the medical team will perform a cardiac specific physical exam, review your questionnaire, and perform an EKG. You may be asked to follow-up for an echocardiogram. Everything will be reviewed by an expert cardiologist. 

  • The cost for this service is $129
