Sandusky Elementary School


Along with the Thomas Smith Memorial Foundation, Hurley Children’s Hospital, McKenzie Health System and Marlette Regional Hospital is offering this screening FREE OF CHARGE to students on Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 9:00am to 2:00pm. The event will be held at Sandusky Elementary School, 395 South Sandusky Road, Sandusky, MI 48471.

You must pre-register to participate. To register, please call 810.648.6120.



Students will undergo a screening that will include a review of the health history questionnaire that you will need to complete at home. They will have their blood pressure checked and an electrocardiogram (ECG) will be performed. A cardiologist will evaluate each student. The doctor will listen to the student’s heart and may choose to perform an echocardiogram, a noninvasive picture of the heart.

To participate in the Hurley Teen Health Check Heart Screening Program you will need to complete the attached paperwork and return it with your child on the day of the screening. If forms are missing or incomplete, we will be unable to screen your child. Please note that screenings take a minimum of 30 minutes and could take up to 90 minutes if it is decided the student needs an echocardiogram.

The Forms Are:
1. Completed Student/Family Health History Questionnaire signed by both a parent and the student
2. Consent to Treatment Form signed by a parent

The data we collect may be used by researchers at Hurley Medical Center and Beaumont Hospital to add to the scientific knowledge of sudden cardiac arrest in young athletes. The data will be reported anonymously. Student privacy and confidentiality will be maintained. Registration for the screening is required. To register, please call 810.648.6120.
