The MCORE Foundation to Provide Cardiac Screening Opportunity for
New Albany High School on February 20, 2020

New Albany High School Parents and Community,

Each year over 400,000 people are affected by sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is not
a heart attack but an electrical malfunction of the heart that causes it to stop suddenly. Sudden cardiac
arrest is often called the silent killer as you or your child could have an abnormality that goes
undetected and without any recognizable symptoms until it is too late.

The mission of the MCORE Foundation is providing communities with education about sudden cardiac
arrest (SCA), symptoms and family history in hopes to prevent these tragedies from happening in our
communities. Their education program works in conjunction with a high level mobile cardiac unit that
provides preventative baseline heart screenings for children ages 12-22.

Their mobile screening unit partners with schools, hospitals and foundations to provide convenient and
dependable heart screenings that otherwise would not be available.

Their mobile cardiac unit will be at New Albany High School on Thursday, February 20, 2020.
All MCORE Foundation screenings include:
• An ECG and limited Echo test performed by registered cardiac sonographers
• Results read by their team of pediatric and general cardiologists
• Images stored within your secured account for future access or to send to your medical provider.

Each test is approximately 10-12 minutes and you may use your healthcare spending account or flex
care spending account for payment. *Should you require financial assistance please contact MCORE.
