Every year the Orlando Orthopaedic Center Foundation partners with area schools to provide pre-participation high school sports physicals to their students. As a fundraiser for the school athletic departments, the schools charge a nominal fee for each physical.
Physicians and sports medicine specialists from Orlando Orthopaedic Center donate more than 250 hours of their time to provide sports physicals to students throughout Central Florida from April to August. Many of the students would not be able to afford these necessary sports screenings if it weren’t for the reduced costs offered at these events.
To learn more, contact your school’s athletic department directly or call Andy Reber, sports medicine outreach coordinator for Orlando Orthopaedic Center, at (407) 254-2501 or email him here.
