Edmonds Family Medicine offering free sports physicals for local students June 5

Physicians and nursing staff from Edmonds Family Medicine (EFM) are donating sports physical exams for students in the Edmonds School District participating in any school sport throughout the upcoming 2014-15 school year.

Exams will be on Thursday, June 5, 2:30-6:30 p.m., in 15-minute time slots at Edmonds-Woodway High School.

Students must personally signup with Denise Lewis, EWHS athletic Secretary in the athletic attendance office. Sign-ups can be requested initially by email to lewisde@edmonds.wednet.edu; however, the student’s guardian must complete the consent form in order to receive a time slot for the exam.

A $15 suggested donation, cash or check to ESD, will be directed toward EWHS programs such as sports medicine.

The exam will include vital signs and heart, lung and spine exams. Records of the exams will be kept with EFM and the student will have the Edmonds School District medical exam form signed as required for sports participation, which will be valid per district policy, until June 2016.
