As many of you know, we here at Jackson High School are partnering with mCORE, a company that provides mobile heart screenings for young athletes. These screenings are being done in an attempt to catch underlying heart defects that can lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the leading cause of death in young athletes.
