LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19 Athletes for LifeFoundation (a District of Columbia Not for Profit Foundation) and Signalife(Amex: SGN) have just completed their second mobile health screening at theArabian Horse Show in Scottsdale, Arizona -- the largest such event in theworld, at its 35th anniversary.

Physicians and health care institutions from around the area donated theirtime to care for the patients, conducting dozens of screenings utilizingSignalife's award-winning Fidelity 100 ECG monitor. The screenings wereconducted free of charge to the patients.

Willie Gault, the Foundation's founder, commented: "During the weekend,doctors reported that they had detected pathology in certain patients that wasnormally difficult or impossible to identify. Also, certain patients remarkedto me that they were previously advised to undergo thousands of dollars ofheart tests by their physicians -- but were given a clean bill of heart healthat the event by the attending physicians. This is why I started theFoundation: To create some certainty in heart health, and to level theplaying field from the perspective of cost and access for all persons. Iwould like to thank all those who donated their time to conduct thesescreenings and evaluations."
