On July 20th our team of UTMB Health experts offered extracurricular pre-participation at the Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes. Thanks to a great team of volunteers from the departments of Family Medicine, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Physical Therapy, Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, Ambulatory, and the Community Based Clinics we were able to screen 83 students.
While sports pre-participation examinations are not a substitute for the routine health care provided by a personal physician, the station-based approach used by UTMB at the event allowed students and their parents to move through quickly, with the university’s medical specialists available to advise on any special conditions that were noted.
