February 9, 2018 4:49 pm

Mercy Health Student Heart Screenings are FREE and open to any high school student from 9th to 12th grade or entering 9th grade in the fall.

Heart screenings are a simple, quick method to identifying pre-existing heart conditions that could increase a student’s risk of complications during physical activity and/or athletic competition. All students are welcome; not just athletes.

Each student must have a parent or guardian’s consent to undergo the screening. Screenings will take place at Mercy Health Hackley Campus in Muskegon and are completed in about 15 minutes. Screenings will consist of a blood pressure check, 12-lead  EKG, physician exam  and, if needed, an echocardiogram. For any questions, please call 231.672.3047.

Dates: March 21 • July 18 • August 8 • August 22
