Screening for Cardiac Arrest in Young Adults

The Max Schewitz Foundation is a nonprofit, grant-making charitable foundation started by Max’s family and friends after Max died from a sudden cardiac arrhythmia at age 20 in 2005. The Foundation has dual missions:

  • To support environmental conservation, a lifelong interest of Max's. Specifically to support through education and conservation fragile and threatened reptile ecosystems and species.
  • To support education, prevention, and research of sudden cardiac death in young people.

The foundation provides EKG screening at various schools in the area.
