Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Symposium
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the number one cause of death of student athletes and the leading cause of death on school campuses. Every hour, every day we are losing another child to SCA - most often due to a detectable and treatable heart condition.

As a pediatric cardiologist, I have seen firsthand the devastating impact of conditions associated with Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth and young adults. I invite medical providers, school health providers and staff, athletic trainers, coaches, physical education and health teachers, and PIAA representatives to attend this groundbreaking symposium, which addresses this critical issue. The goal of the symposium is to provide awareness of sudden cardiac arrest and death and the associated conditions, discuss strategies that can help to identify these potential life-threatening cardiac conditions, and to explore the latest screening, diagnostic, and treatment options to prevent sudden cardiac death in youth.
Please join The Peyton Walker Foundation as well as our esteemed faculty on April 4th in Hershey. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn about the most current research, discuss pros and cons of ECG screenings, receive hands-on training, and help identify best practices for children and adolescents at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Continuing education credits (CME and CEU) are available.
