Teen Athlete Cardiac Screening
The TACS program, co-founded in 2006 by the David Heller Foundation and Legacy Health, aims to educate the public about the importance of cardiac screening for young athletes aged 13-19. Screening can detect cardiac conditions such as hypertrophic cardio-myopathy, the most common cause of sudden death in athletes.
Even kids who seem healthy and have passed a physical exam may have heart problems, This can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. Our seventh annual Teen Athlete Cardiac Screening will check students from 13-19 for potential heart problems.
