Protecting Children and Youth from Sudden Cardiac Arrest
2624 Whitman Drive, Wilmington, DE 19808
Copyright © 2017 Matthew Krug Foundation - All Rights Reserved.
The Matthew Krug Foundation will educate the public about sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in a way that clearly presents facts, maintains up to date information, uses all available resources, and networks with other heart related organizations, so that disabilities and deaths of children and youth* due to SCA and HCM are avoided.
*Government and Public Health Organizations define children as ages 0 to 14 years and youth as ages 15 to 24 years.
There are four areas in which The Matthew Krug Foundation is working:
1. Education of the public (children & parents), educators, people involved with sports programs, and the medical community
2. Increased availability of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
3. Providing cardiac screenings (preferably free)
4. Improved pre-participation physical exams (PPE)
We are focusing our efforts in the state of Delaware and Southern New Jersey, and working with partners (local and national) to accomplish these goals through out the United States of America. Click here to see links to our partners.
