Reduced-cost heart check at PHS

HEART FACTS (American Heart Association).

Reduced cost cardiac screenings will be offered on Thursday at Pacifica High School from 4-9 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The event is sponsored by the PHS Parent Teacher Student Association.

Cardiac screenings are offered for a donation of $85 per person, ages 5 and up. These tests – using the echocardiogram and electrocardiogram – typically cost $1500 and are usually not covered by health insurance.

Sudden cardiac arrest is the top killer in the U.S., and a young athlete dies from SCA every three days.

You can schedule screening appointments online by going to http://www.heartfeltcardiacprojects.org . Click the link “schedule a screening.”

Pacifica is located at 6851 Lampson Ave. (at Knott Street) in Garden Grove.
