You probably have your sights set on summer and are busy planning activities for your children. As you put together their schedules, be sure to include an annual exam early in the season. Both school and sport physicals can be completed in May or June for the following school year.*
While it may not seem urgent, a yearly physical exam by your family’s doctor is an important part of your child’s health care. Back-to-school check-ups, as they are commonly called, are often the only visit children and teenagers have with their pediatrician or family medicine provider every year. The annual physical gives the doctor a chance to do a thorough physical exam, update vaccinations, and address any emotional, developmental, or social concerns. It is also a good time to evaluate athletes and answer questions related to nutrition, exercise and sports injuries.
Schedule a 2016-2017 Sport & School Physical for your child in the month of May or June and be entered to win one of three $50 Target Gift Cards!
