As a part of its mission in the community, St. Francis Hospital, The Heart Center will be conducting free cardiac screenings of high school student athletes (grades 9 through 12).

The purpose of this initiative is to detect and assess potential cardiac abnormalities that may put a strain on an athlete’s heart particularly when he or she is engaged in strenuous physical activity.

If you are interested in participating in a screening, please call the St. Francis Hospital Community Outreach Department at 516-629-2013 to reserve your place. Screenings will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis. Pre-registration is required prior to the date of the event.
