Young Hearts for Life Cardiac Screenings

With the support of generous donors, Lemont High School again is partnering with Young Hearts for Life to offer all Lemont High School students free cardiac screenings. The Young Hearts for Life (YH4L) Cardiac Screening program will visit Lemont High School on March 26, 2020. All students whose parents/guardians authorize them to be tested will be screened during the school day. These free screenings are made possible through the generosity of event sponsors Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital and the just1mike Foundation.

Young Hearts for Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides free cardiac screenings through an electrocardiogram (i.e., EKG or ECG). These screenings help identify high school students who may be at risk for sudden cardiac death. More than 250,000 students have been screened since the inception of the Young Hearts for Life program in 2006.

Lemont High School has seen approximately 3,400 students receive free cardiac screenings between its events in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017!
