HGH to Offer Free Sports Physicals to Area Youth

This Saturday, July 27, local youth athletes are invited to get a free physical examination from Humboldt General Hospital.

For the fifth year in a row, HGH will offer free sports physicals to all Lowry High School, McDermitt High School, Winnemucca Junior High School and Humboldt County youth sports organization athletes who will participate in school-sanctioned or community sports.

Additionally, any other youth in need of physical examinations for other activities such as scouting are invited to participate.

Youth may stop by anytime between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. on the main floor of Humboldt General Hospital's new medical office building. Students will be served on a first-come, first-served basis; no appointments will be scheduled. Last check-in time is 5 p.m.

Free physicals will only be offered during the physical exam clinic and will not be available free of charge from HGH providers following the event. Students should bring their physical examination form with them. All students must also be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

For more information, please call HGH Community Education and Development Director Nicole Maher at (775) 761-2624.
