Vision

Our vision is to promote awareness for early detection programs, research initiatives, that affect policy changes at the local, state, and national level.

Our Objectives

what we are trying to achieve…

To conduct an awareness campaign to educate providers, coaches, athletic directors, teachers, parents, and youth about the dangers of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (arrhythmias) and how to prevent sudden cardiac arrest among young athletes ages 12 to 24.

To implement a screening and protection program in middle schools, high schools, and post-secondary institutions to ensure that all young competitive athletes, ages 12 to 24, are offered routine screening for heart conditions to identify Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and other heart diseases.

To develop a research initiative led by a “think tank” group consisting of physicians, epidemiologists, researchers, consumers, and other stakeholders, that is charged to conduct research regarding best practices for screening, provide recommendations to stakeholders, and guide organizational activities.

To implement an advocacy campaign to influence policymakers and other stakeholders to consider policy to require that all young competitive athletes, ages 12 to 24, are offered routine screening for heart conditions to identify Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and other heart diseases.
