Helping Students Stay Healthy with Pre-Participation Evaluations

A.J. Aycock is a star athlete who underwent a pre-participation evaluation during the 2016 Expo. The simple screening may have saved his life.

General pre-participation evaluations are mandatory in the state of Arkansas for teens in grades 7-12. St. Bernards offers an EKG in addition to the screening. This test, paired with the health screenings, keeps kids safe, as any major heart defect or other health issue is detected in advance.

Pre-participation evaluations will again be offered at the St. Bernards Medical Group Health & Fitness Expo.

You can register for a screening and see the full schedule at stbmdexpo.com. Deadline to register online is April 19.
