Bellin Health offers student-athlete physicals

07/29/2010

GREEN BAY — Bellin Health Sports Medicine and Bellin Health Family Medical Centers are offering pre-participation exams for students taking part in the upcoming 2010-11 athletics season.

The exams, scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 4 and Thursday, Aug. 5, 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, www.wiaawi.org (http://www.wiaawi.org/index.php?id=168).

“Our sports physicals are quite helpful for the schools,” said Angie Puchalla, a licensed athletic trainer at Bellin Health Sports Medicine. “The proceeds go right back to the individual schools and can be used to supplement areas such as the schools’ athletic training supply budgets or costs to student athletes for performance training sessions.”
