Event Details

Description

SafeBeat, in collaboration with Wolfson Children’s Hospital, will conduct preventative heart screenings to the participating counties of the Okefenokee RESA in February of 2018. Each screening will include individual/family medical history, blood pressure, body mass index (height and weight), and a 12-lead electro-cardiogram (EKG). This information will further supply data to help detect/prevent obesity and hypertension. Screenings will be provided at no charge so that no child is left out because of the inability to pay for preventative heart screening and education.

Any middle and high school student involved in extracurricular activities from the participating counties – Brantley, Charlton, Pierce, and Ware – will be given the opportunity to be screened for any underlying heart defects in an effort to prevent sudden death.

A special thank you to Ware County Superintendent, Jim LeBrun, and the staff of Ware County School District for their unwavering assistance in hosting our screening event.
