On 12th and 13th January 2019 Chobham Rugby Club will be hosting a weekend of cardiac assessment for 14-35 year olds by the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young).
This has been organised by one of their members whose family have first hand knowledge of losing a young person due to an diagnosed heart defect.
In 80% of cases of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD) there are no prior symptoms of a heart defect. The frequency of YSCD can be dramatically reduced by making heart screening available to all young people between the ages of 14 and 35.
The assessments will be open to anyone between the ages of 14 and 35 (members and non-members) and take about 15 minutes.
Anyone interested can book a screening session at http://www.testmyheart.org.uk
