Our primary focus is conversing in Spanish over lunch. Members often bring flyers, advertisements or other printed items that have been translated into both languages, for discussion. We welcome both Spanish speakers who want to share their language and culture, and those learning the language at any level. Most participants order food when they arrive and then bring their lunch to the meeting. We generally meet in the northwest corner of the restaurant or near the glass wall of the indoor playground so that we can rearrange tables and see each other without disrupting restaurant traffic patterns. Participants arrive when they can and leave when they need to, as several utilize their lunch hours to attend. Chick-fil-A at Mccreless Marketplace 4110 New Braunfels Avenue, South

Free Heart Screenings for Teens 8:30am 

FREE heart screening for teenagers. AugustHeart provides free heart screenings to students, ages 14-18, in San Antonio and surrounding counties. Since the heart is a muscle continuing to grow during puberty, many life-threatening heart conditions can develop during this time. Many abnormalities of the heart can potentially cause sudden cardiac death and some of them can be detected by using electrocardiogram and/or echocardiogram. Once thought to be exceedingly rare, sudden cardiac death is far more prevalent among young athletes than previously believed. The purpose of AugustHeart is to prevent sudden cardiac death in teens through simple heart screenings that can detect abnormalities of the heart. The screening includes a modified Electrocardiogram (12-lead ECG – measures the electrical activity in the heart), and if necessary, a limited Echocardiogram (2-dimensional ECHO - ultrasound picture of the heart). All data collected related to the heart screen will be interpreted by a board certified pediatric or adult cardiologist immediately. Any student with an abnormal screen may be offered the opportunity to undergo a more thorough evaluation so a plan for care can be established. Parents can read our story and sign their teen up for a free heart screening online Piper-Bass Student Center at Blossom Athletic Complex 12002 Jones Maltsberger
