Family Health West to offer free physicals for high school athletes

Family Health West in Fruita has scheduled a clinic offering free physicals for high school athletes.

The clinic is set for 4 to 6 p.m. July 21 and 22 in the physical therapy gym at Colorado Canyons Hospital and Medical Center at 300 W. Ottley Ave. 

Western Valley Family Practice will join with the hospital and physical therapy department to present the clinic.

Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to complete physicals. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, only one parent or guardian may accompany each student. Everyone must wear masks.

Students also may obtain COVID-19 vaccinations during the clinic. Students must bring insurance cards and photo identifications to obtain vaccinations, although they will be provided at no charge.

In addition, parents of participating students can indicate their interest in concussion analysis and knee injury prevention screenings.
