December 28, 2011 - Beaumont Hospital and Clarkston Community Schools offers free heart screenings for students, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Jan. 21, at Clarkson High School.

The Healthy Heart Check, Student Heart Screening Program is for students involved in vigorous activities and organized sports. The program includes health questionnaire, blood pressure check, electrocardiogram, evaluation by a physician, and possibly an echocardiogram.

It screens for signs of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young athletes.

Paperwork must be completed and returned on the day of the screening. Forms can be found at www.clarkston.k12.mi.us.

Registration for the screening is required. To register, call 800-633-7377 or visit www.heart.beaumont.edu.
