Student physicals clinic offered by Franciscan St. Francis Sports Medicine

INDIANAPOLIS – Preparation and safety are paramount before young athletes take to playing fields.

That’s why Franciscan St. Francis Health Sports Medicine is offering physicals to students at a special clinic Saturday, July 19. The event, which is from 9 a.m. to noon, is located at the 5255 
Building at the hospital’s Indianapolis campus (8111 S. Emerson Ave.).

The sports physical pays special attention to the cardiopulmonary and musculoskeletal systems. This in-depth evaluation identifies children who are at risk of developing an illness or injury during sports activities.

Physical exams not only prepare students to participate in sports but also provide parents valuable information about their child’s health. The process addresses the student’s full medical history, including immunizations.

Appointments are required and the fee is $15 (cash or check only) per student. To register, contact Karen Boggs at 317-781-133, option 1.
