Licking Memorial Health Systems (LMHS) is planning to offer sports screening to the Licking County Community. The program will offer screenings to all student athletes and band members, entering grades 7 through 12, required to comply with the Ohio High School Athletic Association sports physical pre-participation requirements. Students entering grades 11 and 12 in specific educational training programs at CTEC will also be eligible.
The program will include sports physicals, heart screenings and baseline concussion testing. In an effort to serve students who were not able to receive the heart screening last year due to COVID restrictions, all students participants will receive the free heart screenings along with their physical this year. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE
. The program dates begin May 4th and will end May 27th, with the first two dates located at the Pataskala Health Campus. Please register online at: LMHealth.org/SportsScreenings or email: [email protected] with questions.
