Thanks for spending a gorgeous Saturday with us up in Coon Rapids! The high school student volunteers did a fantastic job and made sure we were well fed and hydrated! We were a little short on equipment and manpower, but with some adjustments to the workflow we got through. Thanks to all the volunteers who were flexible and worked hard to keep things flowing! Special thanks to Dr. Scott Benson for coming in early after working late the night before. We are fortunate to have such compassionate and dedicated core volunteers. By a show of hands, the large majority of our skeleton crew were repeat volunteers. We very much appreciate your help!
Out of 173 kids (and two volunteers!) screened, we found a number of kids (13) with high blood pressure who will need ongoing follow up and three minor structural abnormalities, of which two could use some follow up with repeat imaging down the road. We also found a significant electrical abnormality in a volunteer who was having symptoms and she will be following up in the near future.
Please sign up early and often! Registration for Shakopee in April is open now!
