McKenzie Health System Providing Sports Physicals for Students
Sanilac County, Mich. – Supporting students and making it easy for them to receive required sports physicals, McKenzie Health System will be offering $15 sports physicals for all local students, with clinics scheduled at four locations in May and June.
If a student has received an annual wellness visit recently from a McKenzie family provider, they can simply bring their form in to that office for completion at no additional cost.
Upcoming sports physical clinics are scheduled for:
- Carsonville-Port Sanilac Schools:
May 13, 9:00 a.m. with Dr. Mark English at Carsonville-Port Sanilac High School
- Sandusky Schools:
May 24, 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 noon, with Nurse Practitioner Mike Lewis and
Nurse Practitioner Brandy Trepkowski at Sandusky High School
- Croswell-Lexington Schools:
June 2, 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. with Dr. Matthew Gormley, Physician Assistant Kimberley Curell, and Nurse Practitioner Nicole Krosnicki at Croswell-Lexington Middle School
- Peck Schools:
August 3, 8:00 - 11:00 a.m., with Dr. James L. Sams and Nurse Practitioner Stephanie Hebberd at Peck Medical Center
“Whether you need a physical for your upcoming season or have questions about your overall health and wellness, that’s what we’re here for!” said Heather Chambers, Director of Healthcare Practices at McKenzie Health System. “We are pleased to be able to offer affordable sports physicals for anyone who hasn’t scheduled their annual visit yet and are preparing for their next season.”
Annual wellness visits are more thorough than sports physicals and are covered by insurance. They include immunizations, nutrition and health, lab work, and preventative care. Children and teen students who do not have insurance or are not due for an annual wellness visit can take advantage of $15 sports physicals. Typically, sports physicals are required for student athletes to ensure they are healthy enough to participate in extracurricular activities.
If students are interested in an annual wellness exam and do not currently have a family healthcare provider, a complete list of McKenzie providers can be found at www.McKenzieHealth.org.
