With the high school fall sports less than a month away, local healthcare providers are encouraging parents to get their child’s physical examinations scheduled. Physicals for students who participate in organized sports are a requirement to ensure healthy participation. Melissa Fleischman, team leader from Bellin Health in Sturgeon Bay, says if your child did not have a physical last year, he or she is due for one this upcoming school year.
Bellin Health offers a free coupon for an EKG test that needs to be done in Green Bay. The $20 physical fee gets donated back to the student’s school, according to Fleischman.
