Living Heart Foundation


The Living Heart Foundation (LHF) has been providing former players with heart screenings for years in an effort educate players about the risks of cardiovascular disease. Through the generation of awareness throughout the former player community, the LHF has identified risks in countless players and ultimately saved lives. Their comprehensive database has allowed the LHF to develop proper education and lifestyle programs that are catered specifically to former players. Through several yearly screenings, the LHF is dedicated to serving as many former players as possible to provide them with the healthiest lives possible.

The LHF was established by retired cardiac surgeon, and former NFL player, Arthur J. Roberts, M.D. in April 2001 to combat sudden cardiac death and to provide risk stratification with early intervention for cardiac, pulmonary, and metabolic conditions through on-site screening and integrated health programs.

LHF has been dedicated to providing these services to specific groups that traditionally have been overlooked, especially high school, college and professional athletes.

Upcoming Screenings: More Coming Soon.
