A competitive basketball player since a young age, Zadan’s parents knew the importance of EKG screening. An EKG, followed by an echocardiogram, led to Zadan’s diagnosis of left-ventricular non-compaction (LVNC).  Since then, Zadan has worked to raise awareness about sudden cardiac death in student athletes.  He led the effort to make his the first heart safe school in their region, and is now working with nurses and athletic trainers at seven other local high schools to advocate for certification.
