Tallmadge Middle School is scheduled to offer sports physicals for all sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students May 8 and 9.
All physicals will be conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Bachtel, Family Medicine Doctor at Summa Health Medical Group Bachtel & Associates. The physicals are set to take place both days in the athletic office from 7:30 to 9 a.m.
The school only offers physicals in May. Students who were interested in receiving a physical were required to fill out the necessary paperwork.
The Ohio High School Athletic Association allows student athletes to use their May physicals throughout the following school year. Physicals are not handled through insurance, so students can still receive one physical through their insurance within the calendar year.
