The Olmsted Falls High School Athletic Departement would like to make our families aware of an excellent opportunity that’s been made available to our student-athletes at Olmsted Falls High School. We are again partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). mCORE partners with high schools and athletic organizations to give convenient and dependable heart screenings to students
SCA is the #1 Killer of Student-Athletes Each Year, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this.

All screenings are performed by a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer and results are read by the mCORE Medical Director Dr. Kenneith Berkovitz, MD.
