Join us in welcoming Dr. Michael Lopez to Pediatric Specialists of America At Pinecrest.
The leading cause of sudden death among young athletes is sudden cardiac death (SCD). Every three days in the U.S., a student athlete dies of SCD. Usually there are no advance signs or symptoms.
Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is reaching out to the region’s young athletes by offering free pediatric EKG screenings to middle and high school sports participants. Truly a gift to your family, a patient’s ability to receive a free EKG is not conditioned on his or her ordering any other item or service from Nicklaus Children’s Hospital or its medical staff.
