Still in need of a sports physical? Forgot about school shots?
On Monday, New River Health provided sports physicals at four different locations.Those locations included Summersville, Oak Hill, Independence, and Valley High Schools.
Patient Registration Specialist, Cathy Stover, told 59 News, not only do physicals allow students to play sports, these check-ups also benefit the students.
“They want to make sure that they don’t have any issues with blood pressure, any type of sickness anything like that. To make sure they’re their best while playing and not get hurt, that’s the main goal,” Stover said.
The cost of these physicals are covered through grants from school based health programs. Another round of physicals will be given Monday, Aug 6, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
