Parent Heart Watch advocates for SCA prevention in youth among numerous organizations in education, sports and medical communities. We have a voice at national and international conferences and in working groups and we drive collaborations to change the paradigm of youth lost to SCA.



American Academy of Pediatrics

We collaborate on a number of initiatives to create a more robust action plan to incorporate SCA prevention into primary care practice. Goals include developing resources and policy initiatives that support primary and secondary prevention standards.


Cardiac Safety Research Consortium

We are a liaison and key collaborative partner for a pilot project to establish a national SCA data warehouse that unifies consistent heart screening data collection as a means to effective analysis of outcomes. Project participants include PHW members committed to advancing research to support the efficacy of standardized youth heart screenings.


National Association of School Nurses

School nurses are on the front lines of student health so our partnership helps prepare them to respond to a cardiac emergency.

Youth Sports Safety Alliance - COLLABORATIONS

National Athletic Trainers' Association Youth Sports Safety Alliance

An inter-association coalition that recently published a consensus statement is in sync with PHW's Prevention Promise to arm youth sports with cardiac emergency action plans, AEDs and return-to-participation protocol for young athletes who exhibit warning signs of a potential heart condition.

Sudden Death in the Young Registry

Parent Heart Watch was a catalyst for this pilot collaboration between the National Institutes of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to establish the Sudden Death in the Young Registry—the first federal effort to document and evaluate SCA in youth. PHW is one of only 11 members on its national advisory committee.
