Advocates Push For Bill To Educate About Risks Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest
The goal of the possible legislation is to promote awareness of the disease's symptoms in order to protect young athletes.
The San Diego Union-Tribune:
Heart Foundation Rooting For State Bill
After their 15-year-old son died of sudden cardiac arrest — a failure of his heart’s electrical system – Eric Paredes’ parents set a goal. They were going to help craft legislation that would help educate parents, teachers and coaches about the affliction that killed their son. It would also be designed to better protect student athletes, who are most susceptible to the often fatal condition which can strike with no warning. (Winkley, 4/3)
