In continuing support of the communities they serve, the medical providers at Memorial Hospital’s Primary Care practice are offering a free opportunity for students to get the sports physicals they may need. On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, at 5:30pm, Kennett High School students, along with their parents/guardians, can come to Kennett High School for “no appointment necessary” complimentary physicals which will be performed by primary care practitioners.
This is the second year Memorial is working with Kennett Athletic Director Neal Weaver to ensure that all student athletes have access to the sports physical exam they need to compete. A current sports physical from within the past two years is required before any student can participate in a school sport.
This sports physical is not meant to take the place of a child’s annual office visit and does not provide any needed immunization updates. Families are urged to contact their family doctor if you have any questions.
The program will take place in the KHS nurse’s office; visitors are asked to use the rear doors near the gymnasium.
“We wanted to find a way to help local families with something that they really needed,” said medical director Dr. Raymond Rabideau. “At the same time, we also want to encourage young people to participate in sports and other physical fitness activities as a way to stay healthy and fit.”
