mCORE to Provide Cardiac Screening Opportunity at Sandy Valley

posted Dec 11, 2018, 7:41 AM by Allison Morris

mCORE will be at SV on January 23rd from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. to provide preventative heart screenings for athletes. These screenings can help save lives. This is an excellent opportunity for SV athletes, and SV students will receive the screenings for only $40. SV, in partnership with mCORE™(Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation), will screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).  

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 athlete. Each athlete will be given an EKG and Echo screening and these tests typically cost more than $2000 in a clinical setting BUT special pricing at SV will be $40! You may use your Healthcare Spending Account or Flex Care Spending Account. All screenings are performed by a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer and results are read by mCORE Medical Director and our pediatric cardiology team. (Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part)
