posted Nov 7, 2018, 9:05 AM by Kelley St. Coeur

On Monday, November 19 we will have a "health day" at AHS where students and community members can get their heart health checked and then give the gift of potential health to someone by donating blood.  

Dear Students and Parents,

Ashland HS is pleased to announce a heart screening program being offered on Monday, November 19th during the school day. The program will be provided by Mass HeartBeat, a local organization that specializes in ECG heart screening. Mass Heartbeat brings their state-of-the-art ECG technology directly to the school to provide an optional, non-invasive, and affordable screening that can help detect underlying issues in the heart. The ECG tracings are interpreted by an experienced cardiologist and the results will be returned within 5 business days.

Students who are interested must sign up for a time slot and register:
