Description of Research Expertise:

YOUTH HEART WATCH of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Heart Health Screening study---06/01/2006-present---Various foundation support---$10,000

Our program will screen children and youth in selected schools for heart health, looking for undiagnosed conditions that can result in sudden cardiac death in an effort to prevent these tragic events. We will also work with the schools to help assure that their secondary prevention (automated external defibrillator-AED) programs are fully implemented.

I participate as a reader of pediatric echocardiograms done during the screening sessions.
