Please consider registering your children for the upcoming FREE Heart Screening Clinic to be held on Saturday, March 18, 2017, at East Pennsboro Elementary School; 840 Panther Parkway; Enola, PA. The screening is sponsored by The Peyton Walker Foundation and is for all central Pennsylvania teenagers 12-19 years of age. Staff from the PinnacleHealth CardioVascular Institute will perform the screenings.
Considering that: 1) every 3 days a student athlete dies from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA); 2) SCA is the #1 killer of student athletes, and 3) 1 out of every 100 students screened is found to have a previously undetected heart condition,we thought it important to provide you with this valuable, life saving information.
Please see the attached flyer for additional information.
