Free Cardiac and Concussion Screenings For Young Athletes

Score your FREE health assessment screening today from the Matthew J. Morahan III Health Assessment Center (MJM) at RWJBarnabas Health.

Free Screenings - Experts recommend these screenings to be repeated every two years.

Cardiac Screenings For Young Athletes 6-18 years old
Open to the first 200 athletes

When preliminary testing to identify serious cardiac problems is provided to young athletes, sudden cardiac arrest and tragic deaths may be avoided. Nearly 90 percent of sudden cardiac deaths in young athletes occur during or after athletic activities, and hidden heart conditions are often the cause. Cardiac screening will help to identify players who may require further testing or intervention.

Concussion Screenings For Young Athletes 5-18 years old
Open to the first 120 athletes

Once again, MJM is excited to bring the FDA-approved ImPACT Pediatric® concussion screening for children ages 5 and older. Until recently, concussion screenings were only available for young athletes ages 10 and above. ImPACT Pediatric is an iPad-based computerized test that is individually and easily administered as well as engaging for children, while effectively measuring neurocognitive function. Concussion screening is available to young athletes, ages 5 and older to the first 120 registrants. Having a concussion baseline study (ImPACT) for a young athlete can help identify issues in the future. If an athlete is believed to have suffered a head injury, this screening test may be used to evaluate the severity of the head injury and determine when it is safe to return to play.

The Matthew J. Morahan III Health Assessment Center for Athletes provides education, evaluation and assessment of sports injury and sports-related cardiac and concussion screenings. RWJBarnabas Health serves and cares for more pediatric patients than any other health care organization in New Jersey. This program furthers RWJBarnabas Health's longstanding commitment to the health and well-being of children and young adults.
