Free Heart Screenings for JROTC Cadets!
2023 Dates and locations for youth heart screenings in Puget Sound area high schools by the Nick of Time Foundation can be found on their Youth Heart Screening page.
Thanks to your generous donations, we are able to offer free cardiac screenings to Puget Sound area JROTC cadets, through a partnership with the Nick of Time Foundation! Screenings consist of a Heart Health Survey for symptoms and family history, an ECG that analyzes the electrical signals of the heart, and review by medical professionals on site. A simple ECG can identify certain serious heart conditions that cannot be detected with a stethoscope. Additionally, each cadet will learn CPR and how to use an AED (defibrillator). Other pre-military students or military members between the ages of 14-24 can also apply for this $25 scholarship.
- When you make your appointment, be sure to indicate "JROTC" in the registration so that Lion Heart Heroes will know to pay the fee.
