Keeping the Beat Program
Free Cardiovascular Screens for Students
The Metro Health “Keeping the Beat” Student Heart Screen Program offers FREE cardiovascular screens to high school students ages 14-18. It’s 100% funded by donors. The goal of the screen is to identify pre-existing heart conditions and abnormalities which may place a student at risk for health complications and sudden cardiac arrest.
Student Heart Screens are scheduled throughout the year. To be the first to know when dates are announced, sign up for the Metro Health Hospital Foundation e-newsletter.
