DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., July 29, 2020 – On July 17 and 18, AdventHealth performed more than 380 free physicals for Volusia County Schools student athletes grades 6-12.
Representing a more than $10,000 gift to the families of student athletes in Volusia County, AdventHealth conducted these free physicals at the Daytona International Speedway’s Rolex Lounge.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AdventHealth provided this service with several additional precautions to ensure the safety of all attendees, including symptom and temperature screenings, mask usage and social distancing.
These free physicals were provided as part of AdventHealth's partnership with the Volusia County School District, which addresses three key issues affecting students: student-athlete health, chronic absenteeism and health care career development.
