Wright Memorial Hospital Offers Free Sports Physicals
TRENTON, Mo. — Wright Memorial Hospital will once again offer free sports physical exams for area students who plan to participate in athletic/cheerleading activities during the 2024-2025 school year. Sports physical exams will take place at Trenton High School and Trenton Middle School on February 22, Pleasant View R-VI on March 5, Spickard on March 12, and Laredo, Galt, and Humphreys schools on March 19.
Wright Memorial Physicians’ Group providers and nurses will visit the schools on the designated dates to perform the physicals onsite throughout the day.
Students who want a free sports physical must obtain the MSHSAA form available at the school, the Grundy County Health Department, or online at www.grundycountyhealth.org. The entire form must be completed before the exam, including the parent/guardian's signature, for the student to receive the physical exam. Instructions attached to the MSHSAA form should be closely followed to ensure the exam can be completed.
Completed forms for TMS and THS must be returned to the school by Tuesday, February 20. The form completion dates for the other schools are to be determined but must be completed before the day of physicals.
If the student does not pass the sports physical exam, an appointment will need to be scheduled with the student’s primary care physician to have concerns from the sports physical addressed in a more detailed examination.
