Hurley Medical Center is offering a free Teen Health Check for area high school students, ages 13-19. This special program offers an in-depth heart screening that includes a medical history, blood pressure check and an ECG. Echocardiograms will also be provided, if necessary.

The screening looks for evidence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a serious condition that can cause sudden cardiac death in young athletes as well as in students engaging in physical activity or exercise.

The special event takes place on Saturday, February 11 from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. inside Swartz Creek High School Gymnasium. To register, call 810-262-9260, then press option 1.

Organizers expect to scree upwards of 300 teens at this special screening event. “The screening takes about 30 minutes,” says Dr. Jim Weber, ER Physician on staff at Hurley. “Those 30 minutes may save a student’s life or provide peace of mind for parent’s concerned about their child’s risk of sudden cardiac death and premature hypertension.”
