MCCH Volunteers Provide More Than 530 Free Sports Physicals for Local Athletes

murray calloway hosp2MURRAY, Ky. (7/26/14) — A team of seven volunteer physicians, four APRNs and 31 other staff recently provided free sports physicals to local middle and high school students.

The program is offered every year as a community service to student-athletes from the Murray Independent and Calloway County school districts.

The average family physical costs a family $100, so area families saved an estimated $53,000 this year thanks to the volunteers.

In addition to the sports physicals, MCCH supports local students through providing a Certified Athletic Trainer to each district, AED units for schools, free Center for Health and Wellness memberships for student-athletes and numerous health events such as sports physicals, health screenings and CPR certifications. The hospital also supports the school nurse program in both districts.

The free sports physicals offered over the summer could not have been made possible without the help of numerous volunteers: Dr. Mehdi Ahmadi, Dr. David Bryson, Dr. Stephen Compton, Dr. Danielle Foster, Dr. Joyce Hughes, Dr. David Koelsch, Dr. Matthew Price, Dana Alexander, APRN, Rebecca Johnson, APRN, Lyn Ryan, APRN, Debbie Wiles, APRN, Heather Armstrong, Christie Arnold, Mitzi Cathey, Elizabeth Copeland, Beverly Dukes, Kristie Dukes, Mitzi English, Kim Evans, Amy Futrell, Ashley Futrell, Teri Futrell, Renee Garland, Amy Grogan, Janie Hale, Michelle Jones, Tina Kendall, Tammy Lovett, Vanessa Lyons, Amy Marquardt, Judy Moore, Kim Neal, Teresa Nixon, Rita Peal, Kelli Phelps, Carlos Ransey, Lisa Rister, Chris Sexton, Chrystal Sexton, Rhonda Sirls, Janice Wallace and Veronica Yucom.
