About Us

Home/About Us

Screen Across America is a consortium of organizations that provide heart screenings to students. We believe that this should be a standard of care because thousands of children die every year from sudden cardiac arrest. It is the #1 cause of death of student athletes.

As organizations, we operate independently of each other. We are nonprofits and for profits. Some of us charge for heart screenings while others offer them free of charge. Our screening protocols may differ slightly. Many of us have adopted the International Criteria (formerly Seattle Criteria) - a set of guidelines established by international experts in the field of sports cardiology to evaluate the hearts of student athletes. Although most of us do not limit our screenings to athletes. We encourage screenings for all students. 

Which screening model would work best for you? Check out some of the ways we screen. For more information, contact info@screenacrossamerica.org.
