Heart checkups offered to young in Stanwood, Arlington

ARLINGTON -- Heart disease is a leading cause of death among young athletes.
The Nick of Time Foundation plans to host free heart screenings for all Stanwood and Arlington young people ages 14 through 24 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Arlington High School, 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd.
Although heart disease is often perceived as an adult problem, the American Heart Association says that one in every 350 young people has an undetected heart condition.
The heart screenings to be offered Wednesday include a family health history survey, an electrocardiogram and an echocardiogram. The tests are painless and it all takes about 25 minutes.
Nick of Time Foundation and partners UW Medicine and Seattle Children's Hospital, provide free heart screenings at high schools throughout the region.
Also participating in the screenings are Arlington High School, Arlington Fire Department, Cascade Valley Hospital and Providence Regional Medical Center.
More information is available at www.nickoftimefoundation.org. Those interested can download the forms and email for an appointment time.
