The free back-to-school physicals will include general health assessments and sports physicals (minus immunizations) with a Nemours specialist, as well as vision screenings at select locations. In addition, mammogram screenings will be available for women accompanying their children at the Longwood Shepherd’s Hope Health Center location on July 30 in conjunction with the Florida Hospital for Women Mobile Wellness Coach.
To qualify, children must be under age 18 and uninsured. Following the completion of their physical exam, they will receive the required Florida Department of Health form (DOH 3040) which meets the state requirement for enrollment in public or private school.
