Student Heart Screenings December 14
Olathe Public Schools will offer $29 heart screenings for students ages 14 and older on Saturday, Dec. 14, in the Instructional Resource Center, 14090 Black Bob Road, Olathe.
The screening, which includes an echo-cardiogram, EKG, blood pressure test and physician's interpretation of the results, often costs several hundred dollars, said Director of Athletics/Activities Lane Green. The discounted rate of $29 is made possible by a grant provided from the Strive 4 Life Foundation. Families
needing financial assistance may contact Green at (913) 780-7989.
"According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 2,000 youths are affected each year by sudden cardiac arrest," Green said. "The majority of these youths show no symptoms and often appear to be in superb physical condition."
Students must register, with their parent/guardian's approval, in advance by calling 1-888-862-8518 or visiting athletictestingsolutions.com. The tests will be conducted between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
