Cardiac Screening for Athletes – February 25 – 27
Cappo Health is offering cardiac screenings (EKGs and Echocardiograms) for high school and middle school athletes in our school district! These tests help pick up conditions associated with sudden cardiac arrest in athletes and are widely implemented at the collegiate level to find at risk athletes and prevent sudden cardiac arrest. All these tests are non-invasive and the results are read and assessed by cardiologists. They will be offering these screening sessions on February 25-27th from approximately noon to 8pm by appointment at the Educational Support Center (ESC) building at the school corporation offices on Grant Line Rd. There is no upfront charge for the screening, although they will bill the athlete’s insurance for the testing. Below is a letter offering additional information about the screening and information about registering your athlete for the screening.
