Thank you for your interest in hosting or sponsoring a Teen Heart Screening event. Via Heart Project is committed to providing youth in our community access to heart screenings, regardless of household income.

Sponsors subsidize the cost of screenings so they remain free of charge for students and families regardless of income or ability to pay. The audience for a screening event is up to 750 youth along with their families, school staff, media outlets, and over 120 Northern California medical and non-medical volunteers. An estimated 20,000 families and 2,000 volunteers receive information about each event.
