In preparation for the next year, the OCH Gravette Clinic is ensuring that students are prepared for a healthy season with a FREE sports physical event on May 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Tammy Colvin, OCH Gravette Clinic manager, said the clinic hopes to help parents and students in Gravette afford this routine visit so kids are not kept from enjoying activities and sports based on costs.
“Sports physicals are for children of all ages. They help determine the readiness of student athletes to participate and are required prior to involvement in school athletics or other competitive sports,” Colvin said. “Our health care providers are excited and looking forward to another great year for Gravette students!”
Injuries or illnesses are often detected during these annual exams and alert students and their parents about medical conditions that may require further examination from a family practice physician or specialist.
Sports physicals are good through Spring 2022. This examination does not replace well child visits or annual physicals.
If you miss the FREE event, the OCH Gravette Clinic will honor FREE sports physicals until June 30th! To make an appointment for the FREE event, call 479-787-5221.
Signed parental consent forms are required before a pre-participation physical examination can be performed and may be obtained from a school athletic director.
