WakeMed to Offer Free ECG Screenings for Student Athletes

Building on our most recent blog about treating emergencies on the football field, we wanted to share this story just aired by WTVD about a student athlete who collapsed during football practice.

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated occurrence. Every year right here in our community, student athletes collapse and sometimes die due to undiagnosed heart problems.

On Saturday, September 14, WakeMed will host the SportFit Heart screening event for student athletes to receive free ECGs. Learn more and sign up today.
