PREVENTATIVE HEART SCREENINGS
We are partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our students for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). mCORE partners with schools, hospitals and foundations to provide convenient and dependable heart screenings. These screenings are completely voluntary – Brunswick City Schools is providing this as an opportunity families can sign up for.
SCA is the #1 Killer of Student Athletes Each Year, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this.
The time requirement is approximately 10-12 minutes per student and each student will be receiving both an EKG and Echo screening. You may use your healthcare spending account or flex care spending account for payment.
All mCORE screenings are performed by registered cardiac sonographers and results are read by mCORE medical director and our team of pediatric cardiologists.
(Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part).
