Children are the last people you might think of when planning a heart screening, but one out of every 350 people screened has a cardiac abnormality that could be serious if left untreated.
Those statistics have prompted school officials in Marlborough to offer all students in grades 2 through 12 at Marlborough High School on Thursday evening, March 6.
The screenings, which are co-sponsored by the Marlborough Junior Women's Club, cost $49 per child and are available only by prior registration. Anyone wishing to register may do so either by calling 1-866-722-8008 cq or logging onto the web site of HeartScreen America, which administers the tests.
The last day to register is March 4.
