Kosciusko, Miss. – On Wednesday, April 12, 2017, from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM, approximately 100 sixth grade students participated in free physical exams at Kosciusko Junior High School. Baptist providers teamed up to give physicals to not only student athletes, but to all sixth graders interested in participating. The goal was to screen for health issues students may be experiencing that parents and teachers were unaware of. A sports physical is required for students interested in playing school athletics as well as summer camps, clinics and more.

The free physicals included:

  • Blood pressure
  • Height and weight
  • Vision
  • Orthopaedic and flexibility
  • General medical exam

The physicals took place in the gymnasium at Kosciusko Junior High School, located at 317 East Jefferson Street in Kosciusko, Miss.
