LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Athletes for Life Foundation (a District of Columbia Not for Profit Foundation) and Signalife (Amex: SGN) have just completed their second mobile health screening at the Arabian Horse Show in Scottsdale, Arizona -- the largest such event in the world, at its 35th anniversary.
Physicians and health care institutions from around the area donated their time to care for the patients, conducting dozens of screenings utilizing Signalife's award-winning Fidelity 100 ECG monitor. The screenings were conducted free of charge to the patients.
Willie Gault, the Foundation's founder, commented: "During the weekend, doctors reported that they had detected pathology in certain patients that was normally difficult or impossible to identify. Also, certain patients remarked to me that they were previously advised to undergo thousands of dollars of heart tests by their physicians -- but were given a clean bill of heart health at the event by the attending physicians. This is why I started the Foundation: To create some certainty in heart health, and to level the playing field from the perspective of cost and access for all persons. I would like to thank all those who donated their time to conduct these screenings and evaluations."
