MinuteClinic Named Official Sports Physical Provider Of Pop Warner

WOONSOCKET, R.I., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MinuteClinic, a division of CVS Caremark and the largest provider of walk-in medical clinics in the United States, announced today that it has been named the official sports physical provider of Pop Warner Little Scholars, a non-profit organization that provides youth football, dance, and cheerleading programs across the country.

The collaboration is designed to offer parents of Pop Warner athletes convenient and affordable options to obtain required sports physicals for their children before they participate in organized activities. Sports physicals at MinuteClinic are offered seven days a week with no appointment necessary inside more than 625 select CVS/pharmacy stores across the country.

Through the collaboration, football, dance and cheerleading team members can take advantage of convenient sports physicals at MinuteClinic and obtain a discount offered only to Pop Warner participants. The special offer provides $5 off sports physicals at MinuteClinic through the end of the year.  A coupon – which must be presented at MinuteClinic at the time of the physical to obtain the discount – and the Pop Warner Physical Fitness and Medical History form can be printed from the MinuteClinic website at http://www.minuteclinic.com/popwarner and completed in advance. Pop Warner parents can also click on the MinuteClinic logo on the Pop Warner website http://www.popwarner.com/.

"MinuteClinic is proud to be associated with Pop Warner and the role it plays to develop young people on the field and in the classroom," said Nancy Gagliano, M.D., MinuteClinic Chief Medical Officer.  "Safety on the field and in the gym begins with a pre-participation physical."

"We look forward to partnering with CVS MinuteClinic to provide our young athletes nationwide with high quality, affordable and convenient sports physicals and other health services," said Mary FitzGerald, COO of Pop Warner. "The health and safety of our members is our number one priority."

Pre-participation physicals administered by a state licensed practitioner are required for all Pop Warner team members after January 1 of a new playing year. Most other athletic leagues and school systems also require sports physicals. Certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in family health care administer exams at MinuteClinic.

"It's important for young athletes to get checked before the start of a new season," said Angela Patterson, MinuteClinic Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer.  "During the visit, our practitioners review medical history and check to see if immunizations are up to date. They'll then record weight and height and provide a thorough physical exam that includes a check of vital signs and reflexes and an overall assessment of health."

MinuteClinic practitioners also take time to answer questions and share educational tips about the importance of stretching, hydrating and avoiding overexertion so children can play their best.
