Preventive screening

 An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

The old saying is true when it comes to Sudden Cardiac Death.

So the Minneota School District took it upon themselves to hold a preventive screening last Thursday.

One out of 300 young people have an undetected heart condition.

The testing included limited Echocardiogram, health history, blood pressure check and review by a local board certified pediatric cardiologist.

About 9,500 youth are affected annual and 95 percent of victims die.

The event is part of screening-America with the goal of, “On a mission to save lives.”
