Meadow Homes — Fort Vancouver High School students learned about heart health during the May 22 "Heart Your Health: Stay Strong Live Long" fair. On average, an otherwise healthy young person will suffer sudden cardiac arrest in the country every three days. There are often no warning signs, according to The Hope Heart Institute, which coordinated the evening health fair. The event included heart screenings for hundreds of students, first aid instruction and other health-related activities.
