The Noble Health Foundation partnered with the Montgomery City and Wellsville-Middletown school districts in Missouri to offer free high school pre-participation physicals to any student athlete entering 7-12th grade this fall.
“The goal of offering physicals to students at no cost is to make athletics possible for all student-athletes in Missouri, and to keep these young athletes healthy and safe,” said Don Peterson, executive chairman Noble Health Corporation.
Dr. Chen, a Noble Health med-peds physician, performed a thorough physical and medical examination for each student-athlete with help from Lindsay Harris, PA. Both Lindsay and Dr. Chen see internal medicine and pediatric patients at several Noble Health clinics throughout Mid-Missouri and are accepting new patients.
“Our focus is to make healthcare local and affordable to our friends and neighbors in Missouri. This is just one step on that journey.” stated Elijah Haahr, executive director Noble Health Foundation and former speaker of the Missouri House.
The purpose of the high school physicals is to identify and address any pre-existing conditions so students can play more safely and prevent injury.
