Mayo in A.L. to offer free sports qualifying physicals

Published 9:17 am Monday, May 14, 2012

Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea will again be offering free sports qualifying physicals to area school athletes grades sixth through 12th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 24, at the Health Reach campus, 1705 S.E. Broadway, Albert Lea.

These athletic screenings are provided by Mayo Clinic Health System physicians and staff and meet the requirements for participation in sports by Minnesota and Iowa state high school leagues, but are not intended to replace an annual, comprehensive physical exam. Mayo Clinic Health System providers recommend an annual exam for children ages 11 and over.

Packets are available for pick-up in local high school athletic offices, Mayo Clinic Health System’s Patient Education Center and at the Health Reach campus. Forms must be filled out completely and signed by a parent or guardian prior to the event. Call 377-5900 for more information.
