I wanted to make you aware of an excellent opportunity that’s been made available to our athletes at Fireland High School We are partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). mCORE partners with high schools and athletic organizations to give convenient and dependable heart screenings to students. SCA is the #1 Killer of Student Athletes Each Year, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this.
Please See the Details on the Screening Date and Time Below:
Date: Tuesday January 16, 2018
Time: 8:00am – 4:00 pm
Location: Nurses Clinic
Each athlete will be given an EKG and Echo screening and these tests typically cost more than $2000 in a clinical setting. The screening age is 12-22 years. You may use your Healthcare Spending Account. All screenings are performed by a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer and results are read by the mCORE Medical Director Dr. Kenneth Berkovitz, MD. Board Certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology and Internal Medicine.
