MedFest screenings help provide the comprehensive sports physical that is required for all athletes before they step onto the playing field for training and competition. These screenings assess:

  • Blood pressure
  • Temperature
  • Pulse
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)

  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Medical history
  • Potential medication side effects
  • General physical health

How MedFest Helps

In some cases, this is the first exposure these athletes have to medical care and some life-threatening conditions have even been detected during a MedFest event. Thanks to our mobile health vehicle, we’re also able to reach more athletes across the state who otherwise aren’t able to receive regular medical care.
