Summer practice is about to begin for many students who plan to participate in school sports, band, dance and other activities when the new school year begins. If you have a student who needs a pre-participation physical screening in order to take part in these activities, the University of Texas Medical Branch is offering $25 sports physicals this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes, 2240 Gulf Freeway, League City.
UTMB health professionals participating in the Saturday event include sports medicine doctors, orthopedists, family medicine physicians, cardiologists, pediatricians, pediatric specialists, physical therapists and others.
Students should wear T-shirts and shorts. Bring school-specific forms as well as a signed UTMB consent form that can be found at utmbhealth.com. To save time at the screening, please bring completed forms to the center. Appointments are appreciated and walk-ins are welcome. To reserve a spot or get more information, call 832-505-1709 or email VictoryLakes@utmb.edu.
