The Andrew Gobczynski Big Heart Foundation (AGBHF) is joining with St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital to offer a free electrocardiogram (EKG) screening to high school-aged athletes. This painless and harmless test can screen for possible cardiac abnormalities. The EKG will be read by a pediatric cardiologist from SIU who specializes in cardiac disease in patients under the age of 18.
