High school students (and others aged 14-24) throughout the area can get a free, comprehensive heart screening from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 4 at Hazen High School.

The screenings are offered by the Nick of Time Foundation which brings in doctors and medics to screen students for heart abnormalities, including sudden cardiac arrest — the leading cause of death in exercising young athletes.

The 30-minute exams normally cost up to about $2,500 per individual.  The service is free, but a $25 donation is recommended to high school students from area high schools.

The organization will see between 400-500 students who can only receive the screening by appointment.  Additional information can be found on the Nick of Time Foundation website.

Parents can email appt@nickoftimefoundation.org  to schedule an appointment at the event.

They will then be asked to complete the attached packet and will be given further instructions at that time. Appointments cannot be scheduled without the completed paperwork.
