Young Hearts for Life YH4L
Don’t forget to sign up your BHS Student for a FREE cardiac screening which will take place on Thursday, April 2. Barrington High School along with Good Shepherd Hospital and Young Hearts for Life is offering this free and simple way to protect your student and possibly alert you to any potential risks. Students will receive an electrocardiogram screening which identifies students at risk for sudden cardiac death. This is a quick, simple and painless procedure. The ECG can detect certain abnormalities that can’t be detected by a stethoscope. To register your child for this FREE, life-saving screening, go to www.YH4L.org click on "Register Now" and then select "Chicago/Chicago Suburbs - High School Students." You will need your student's school ID# to register. The screening will take place during your student's P.E. class or open period. Current recommendations are to repeat the ECG every other year through the age of 25. Even if your child did it two years ago, please do it again! In addition, MANY volunteers are needed to help with this Free Cardiac Screening. It requires a brief training the evening before on Wednesday, April 1, and the day of the event on Thursday, April 2. Sign up at https://signup.com/go/pNAZQit. Thanks, and we hope to see your child take advantage of this free and important event!
