Heart screening to be held at Shorecrest Apr 5 for students age 14-24

Tuesday, March 28, 2017


Nick of Time screening for heart health will take place at Shorecrest High School during the school day on Wednesday, April 5, 9am - 3pm, hosted by the Shoreline School District. 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.

The screening events are open to any student between 14-24 years old no matter where they attend school.

STUDENTS MUST PRE-REGISTER

Pick up forms at school OR download forms.
Complete, with parent permission signature. For appointments, return forms to the SHS Attendance office or scan and email.

Questions call Nicole Haines 206-393-4294

$25 tax deductible donations may be made online for “Shorecrest HS Screen”, or with cash or checks to “Nick of Time Foundation” may be submitted with forms or at event.

Each screening requires approximately 125 volunteers comprised of laypeople and medical practitioners. A core team from the University of Washington Center for Sports Cardiology is always present.

The screening includes a medical and family history, 12 lead ECG, heart sounds physical, “hands only” CPR/AED training and limited echocardiogram as needed. Cardiologists and sports medicine physicians are on site using the Seattle Criteria to evaluate the ECG and ECHO exams.

The Nick of Time Foundation was founded in memory of 16 year old football player Nick Varrenti of Mill Creek who died of sudden cardiac arrest from an undiagnosed heart condition. 

We may have lost Nick to Sudden Cardiac Arrest but we vow to make his death count and are committed to keeping others with hidden cardiac problems alive. We cannot afford to lose any more of our bright future.
