The Mission of the Morgan Local School District is to provide the opportunity for all students to achieve the skill required to work productively, live successfully, and be a contributing member of society. We will work as partners with each student, the student's family, business and industry, and the community to meet the needs of each child.
I wanted to make you aware of an excellent opportunity that’s been made available to our athletes at Morgan High School. We are partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD).
SCD is the result of unsuspecting cardiological disease or abnormalities which cause the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. It is also the leading cause of death in high school athletes. We hear about several student-athletes each year that are lost to this devastating tragedy, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this. For more info on mCORE and SCD please visit www.mcoreathletes.com.
Please see the details on the screening Date and Time below.
- Date: Thursday, September 11th
- Time: 8:00am - 4:00pm
- Location: Philo High School Training Room
- Screening for: Risk of life-threatening cardiac conditions.
- Time Requirement: Approximately 10-12 minutes per athlete.
- Each athlete will be given an EKG and Echo screening. These tests typically cost more than $2000 in a clinical setting.
- Cost: $75 (Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part)
ATHLETES MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THE SCREENING BY VISITING www.mCOREathletes.com or call Chad Ogden at 614-648-4656 with any questions.
I strongly encourage all of our athletes to take part in this screening opportunity. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly.
