SAVE-THE-DATE: HEART HEALTHY CARDIAC SCREENING FOR OSO GRIZZLIES & THEIR FAMILIES– FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH! On Fri, Feb 7th, we’ll be hosting a Cardiac Screening for Oso Grizzlies & their families in the MPR from 4:00-8:00pm.  In connection with Heartfelt Cardiac Projects, we’ll be offering cardiac screenings for a fee of $85 per person, ages 5 and up.  The echocardiogram (ECHO) and electrocardiogram (EKG) are the best tools for detection of the risks of sudden cardiac death.  These tests typically cost $1,500 and are not covered by insurance.
