Last Chance to Sign Up!

 

As you may already know, mCORE is scheduled to be here at Westerville Central High School on Thursday, November 13thto offer heart screenings to our student athletes. As of today, there are still some available appointment times. These screenings are being done in an attempt to catch underlying heart defects that can lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. SCA is the number one cause of death in young athletes. This is a great opportunity to have heart screenings done in a convenient and cost effective manner. Please see the video below for more on SCA and mCORE.
