  • free screening in Dallas area

    THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
    Trinity West Urgent Care in Lewisville will offer free school physicals from
    9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 14 and 21.

    Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The "Student
    Athlete Appreciation Days" were developed to promote health screening and
    awareness for children and teens in Lewisville and Carrollton. Physicians at
    Trinity said they are particularly concerned about early detection of a heart
    condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or HCM. During exercise, it can
    cause cardiovascular collapse and sudden death. Early identification of HCM is
    paramount, according to Dr. David Zahaluk, Trinity West clinic director. The
    clinic is at 751 Hebron Parkway, Suite 100. For information, call 972-459-2386.

      Hi
      I wonder what the screenings detail. I would hope it would include an Echo, but that would probably not be the case. At least family and students will be given the chance to be screened and informed of the disease before it is too late.
      Thanks for the info.

        I would guess that it's an echo and an EKG.

          Well, another candle in the wilderness.
          May it burn brightly and cause other lights to be lit, driving away the dark shadows of unnecessary sudden death on every playing field in the world.
          Amen,
          Burt
