FREMONT – If you have a student athlete, you know that your child is required to have a basic sports physical before the start of the school year in order to participate in NSAA activities. Did you know that Methodist Fremont Health provides those screenings free of charge?
Methodist Fremont Health staff and local healthcare providers will conduct the sports physicals at no charge to the student-athletes on Tuesday, June 4 and Wednesday, June 5, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., in the Rehab department located on the first floor of the Medical Center.
During the screens, a team of healthcare professionals, which consists of physicians, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, certified athletic trainers, registered nurses and other medical volunteers, will look for health problems and risks of re-injury from previous injuries. Screenings generally take an hour or less.
Students are required to bring their physical release form, which must be signed by a parent. (CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FORM)
