2nd Annual Heart of Champions Day! High Point Medical Center and Carolina Cardiology Cornerstone joined together with support from High Point Community Foundation to provide free important cardiac health screenings for student athletes in our community. In 2012, the American Heart Association (AHA) reported 10,235 cases of Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth under the age of 18. The AHA reports that most sudden deaths in athletes may be attributed to cardiovascular disease (56%). Screening and education are crucial for prevention of sudden cardiac events which may include death.
