Studies show that the best way to protect your child from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is with a physical exam, thorough medical history AND an ECG exam. At a Simon’s Fund Heart Screening, your child will receive all three (our heart screenings are reserved for students that have not been diagnosed with a heart condition or treated by a cardiologist).
Colonial School District (May 10, 2014)
We’re back! Our last screening in Colonial was in 2007. In fact, it was our very first one. This time, we want to screen moms too because heart disease is a family matter (and it’s Mother’s Day weekend). If you have children between the ages of 10 – 19, we hope that you’ll bring them out to this important family health event. Registration will open in April and we’ll be conducting the screening at Colonial Elementary School in the gymnasium. Register Now!
Athlete Health Organization (May 31, 2014)
Every year, we participate in this comprehensive student athlete health screening program. In addition to our regular heart screening, high school students from Philadelphia consult with neurologists, orthopedists, optometrists, primary care doctors and pulmonologists. For more information about this event, visit the AHO website.
