HANCOCK – The Portage Health Sports Medicine Institute is offering free athletic screenings to student athletes on Tuesday, June 12.

These screenings are being offered to student athletes from Hancock, Jeffers, Dollar Bay-Tamarack City, Houghton and Chassell schools that are interested in playing school sports during the 2012-13 school year.

All students should bring a physical form with a completed health history and parent signature, eyeglasses or contact lenses for a vision test, and should be dressed appropriately (with a shirt that can be pulled up so the provider can listen to heart and lungs, and shoes that can be easily removed and put back on for walking test).

The schedule is as follows:

Portage Health Hancock (500 Campus Drive, Hancock)
8 a.m. – 10 a.m. – students from Hancock
10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. – students from Jeffers or Dollar Bay

Portage Health University Center (600 MacInnes Drive, Houghton)
1 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. – students from Houghton
3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. – students from Chassell

For more information, or if you have questions about the screenings, call 483-1012.
