We need you to assist with the TCMS/AISD free athletic physicals for students. These students have no health insurance or have financial or other barriers to health care—often, this is their only well-visit with a physician over the course of a year.
Last year, station-based exams were provided for over 1,000 middle and high school students. Your help is greatly needed to accommodate the number of students who might not be able to participate in sports, band or cheerleading without this program.
For details and to volunteer.
