Sports physical clinic open to high school students, one day only

Homer Medical Center is hosting a sports physical clinic from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 16.

The clinic is for high school students in need of a physical for participation in school-sanctioned activities. Exams on this one-day event are offered free of charge by volunteer health care providers from Homer Medical Center, according to a press release from South Peninsula Hospital.

Students with last names starting with A through H will be seen 9-10:30 a.m. Students with last names starting with I through S will be seen 10:30 a.m.-noon. Students with last names starting T through Z will be seen noon-2 p.m.

All students must bring or wear loose fitting shorts for the screening, according to the press release.

Homer Medical Center asks parents to complete page one of the two-page exam form prior to coming in to the clinic. Forms can be found at sphosp.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Authorization_Release_Student_Health_Review_Exam.pdf.

If students are unable to attend the sports physical day, they can make an appointment for a wellness exam and a sports physical form will be filled out as a part of the wellness exam. Wellness exams should be at no cost to a patient with insurance, according to the press release.

Students without insurance and who cannot make the sports physical day can have a sports physical appointment on a regular clinic day for $40.
