Free sports physicals offered in Albert Lea

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

According to a press release, the athletic screenings are provided by Mayo Clinic Health System physicians and staff and meet the requirements for participation in sports by the Minnesota State High School League, 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.

Sports physical forms can be picked up in local high school athletic offices, Mayo Clinic Health System Patient Education Center or Health Reach Campus.  For more information, call 507-668-2900.
