DETAILS

Physicians and staff from OHSU’s Sports Medicine program are volunteering their time, and will screen athletes for a variety of medical issues that might put athletes at risk during sports. No appointment is necessary; physicals will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents are encouraged to accompany their child to the visit.

Physicals will cost $30. From that fee, OHSU will give $10 to the high school athletic program of the athlete paying the fee. The rest of the proceeds will primarily benefit the OHSU Sports Medicine Community Education & Research Foundation.
