Caring for Student Athletes

Preparing for the Upcoming Sports Season

Ottumwa Regional Health Center recently held their annual free sports physical clinics for area student athletes at three locations in their service area. Over 150 students from grades 7-12 lined up to receive their physicals, along with over 40 community college athletes as well.

A big thank you to the providers and ORHC staff who volunteered their time to help student athletes safely prepare to return to school sports activities – Dr. Shawn Dawson, Shelley Bechtel, Lori Wells, Kerri Rupe, Sam Haney, Wendy Tweedy, and Shannon Simonson.
