ZANESVILLE – Sports Medicine Zanesville will host a free sports physical clinic on Saturday, May 4. Open to all Ohio students, the event starts at 8 a.m. with physicals recommended by the Ohio High School Athletic Association prior to participation in athletics.
“This is a good opportunity for us to give back to our community and ensure that all our local student-athletes are prepared for the upcoming school year,” said Dr. James Gasparine of Sports Medicine Zanesville.
Sports Medicine Zanesville is sponsoring the event, which last year treated nearly 300 students free of charge. Gasparine and his fellow Sports Medicine Zanesville physicians and staff will volunteer their time for the May 4 event, and will be joined by six local primary care physicians and two nurse practitioners. The local volunteers include: Dr. Shelly Dunmyer, Dr. Anthony Flarey, Dr. Ronald Harvey, Dr. Maria Jamiolkowski, Dr. William Shade, Dr. Michael Zimmerer, Angie Pickens, NP and Samantha Cater, NP.
Schools are encouraged to reserve appointment times by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 740-588-1089.
