The ATS HeartCheck is a very simple process that takes approximately 30 minutes and can reveal very important information about your child's heart health.
According to the March of Dimes, 40,000 babies are born with heart defects each year in the United States - that’s nearly 800 kids every week. In as many as 20% of the cases, (8,000 annually), family history plays a significant role. The remaining 80% are due to other causes that we may not typically consider. Additionally, the American Heart Association estimates 9,500 children under 18 experience sudden cardiac arrest annually with only a 5% chance of survival. Many of these defects go unnoticed until it is too late.
Appointments are limited and offered on a First Come-First Serve basis and pre-registration is required. Click here to REGISTER ONLINE, or call (888) 862-8518. Choose the Columbia MO Public Schools option when registering online.
