This is the image for the news article titled Young Hearts For Life Comes to OlympiaToday over 150 Olympia High School students were screened to make sure that they were not at risk for an underlying heart condition.   Olympia High School partnered with Young Hearts for Life and Advocate BroMenn to offer the free cardiac screenings to all high school students.  boothsEvery student that signed up for the screening received an ECG (electrocardiogram) to test the health of their heart and identify any abnormalities that could be risk factors for sudden cardiac death.  The painless test took less than 10 minutes and has the ability to detect 60% of heart condition abnormalities that a stethoscope cannot.  We want to thank YH4L and Advocate BroMenn for all their efforts to provide such a wonderful opportunity for the students of Olympia High School!ekg
