Teen Heart Health Check Being Held in Goodrich this Weekend
If your child plays sports, you may want to check out this event this weekend! Hosted by Hurley Children’s Hospital and sponsored by the Thomas Smith Memorial Foundation, FREE teen heart health checks are being offered for students ages 13 to 19. Normal physicals for school sports programs or other activities do not include a heart check and unfortunately there have been many tragedies recently in which a student playing sports has died from a heart condition that wasn’t diagnosed.
In order to participate, you must pre-register by calling (810) 262-9260 and pressing option #1. Registration lines are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and tomorrow.
