Maine West High School will offer free cardiac screenings to students on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 27-28, as part of the Young Hearts for Life program.
The screenings detect about 60 percent of the abnormalities associated with sudden cardiac death that a stethoscope cannot detect. To date, the program has screened about 90,000 students in the Chicago area, officials said.
