The SafeBeat Initiative Mission

Heart Screenings Saves Lives

SafeBeat is a national initiative that establishes local and regional preventative heart screenings in an effort to prevent sudden death in youth and create a healthier generation throughout America’s public middle/high school systems. Our mission is that no family suffers the loss of a child because of sudden cardiac arrest.

A Simple Test Could Save Your Life or the Life of a Loved One

Most heart defects are not typically detected by the traditional physician's examination, but a non-invasive heart screening can identify those at risk of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and other leading causes of Cardiac Arrhythmia Syndromes.
