Do you have a teen athlete? Have you taken them to get a heart screening? Saturday, Champion Heart Foundation is offering free screenings at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas to teens ages 14-18.
The screenings from 8 a.m. to noon will be available to any teen, not just student athletes, and will look for heart conditions including ones that could cause Sudden Cardiac Death.
The screenings include a echocardiogram and an electrocardiogram (ECG), both noninvasive.
You have to register online in advance and have parents sign a parental waver.

While the $700 tests will be free, the foundation is asking for a $25 donation. It's also looking for volunteers.
To sign up, donate or volunteer, go to champhearts.org.
