GREEN BAY — Bellin Health Sports Medicine and Bellin Health Family Medical Centers are offering pre-participation exams for students taking part in the upcoming 2008-09 athletics season.

The exams are $20 per student athlete, with 100 percent of the proceeds being donated back to each participating athlete’s school. No insurance will be filed for these visits. Student-athletes must be accompanied by their parents or have a signed parental consent form at the time of their visit.

Students also are encouraged to have their WIAA Green Forms filled out prior to their physicals. The forms can be downloaded from the WIAA web site, http://www.wiaawi.org For a. complete list of exam dates and locations, visit http://www.bellin.org

“We are pleased to be able to offer area student athletes this service,” said Angie Puchalla, a licensed athletic trainer at Bellin Health Sports Medicine. “It’s an especially great and helpful service because the proceeds go back to the individual schools and can then be used to supplement areas such as the schools’ athletic training supply budgets or costs to student athletes for performance training sessions.”

For more information, call Puchalla at (920) 430-4750, Ext. 4905 or e-mail aypuch@bellin.org.
