In order to serve you better we are making improvements to our website. Due to this "construction" the links to register for screenings for the 2019-2020 school year will not be available until 8/1/2019. Thank you for your understanding.
We completed our 2018-2019 EKG screening program on April 24, 2019 at Deerfield High School. The school-wide EKG screening program began in 2005 following the sudden death of Max Schewitz. To date, the Foundation has now provided 87,706 EKG’s and 2,375 limited echocardiograms. The Foundation has found 870 students with abnormalities who required further medical evaluation.
Libertyville High Schools students we'll be on your campus next week (March 13) providing EKG screenings. Alane Church, a Warren High School parents shares her story in this video. Hopefully it will encourage you to go home, talk with your parents and get signed up!
The Max Schewitz Foundation is pleased to announce that Kathy Aykroid will join the board of directors as the executive director and secretary. Ms. Aykroid has been the lead project manager for nearly a decade coordinating all school EKG screenings, volunteers, and vendor logistics. She replaces founding member Mary Beth Schewitz, who will become chairman of the Max Schewitz Foundation board.
