Mayo Clinic to offer free sports physicals

Published 9:35 am Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Mayo Clinic Health System will again be offering free sports qualifying physicals to area school athletes grades sixth through 12th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. May 21 at the HealthReach campus, 1705 S.E. Broadway in 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 HealthReach campus. Forms must be filled out completely and signed by a parent or guardian prior to the event. Call 507-377-5900 for more information.
