The standard preparticipation physical fails to detect over 95% of conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac death.


A painless, noninvasive ECG test can detect upwards of 60% of the markers of conditions that lead to sudden cardiac death. Yet, an ECG is not a part of the routine physical for young adults.


To fill that gap and protect our young adults, we provide low-cost, high-quality ECG testing supplemented with limited echocardiography for select students.

Nick Mancuso Joins the Board of Directors

Nick Mancuso, a lifelong friend of Max’s and professional racecar driver, has joined our board of directors as Director of Conservation Causes for the Max Schewitz Foundation. He will bring his years of expertise as an animal caretaker, herpetologist and overall adventurer to this new role. Nick is looking forward to bringing new ideas to the board that could grow our conservation mission. Additionally, Nick will develop sponsorship platforms learned from his racing career to help the foundation form new partnerships to support ongoing screenings and other endeavors.

School is back in session and unfortunately that means thousands of young adults in the United States will die due to a hidden cardiac condition.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now estimate 2,000 Americans under the age of 25 will die of sudden cardiac arrest in the coming year.  It’s the leading cause of death on school property.
