Healthy Start screening event scheduled

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- It's that time of year again. The 78th Medical Group will be providing Healthy Start Screenings for Tricare beneficiaries entering Georgia schools for the first time.

Screenings are for students from pre-k through 12th grade and will be conducted July 11 and 25 from 9 a.m until noon in Bldg. 700A - no appointments are necessary.

Children will have vision, hearing and dental exams - all of which are required by the Georgia school system. In addition, height, weight, blood pressure and scoliosis screenings will be performed.

Immunizations will be available, so bring a copy of your child's latest shot record. The Georgia school forms, 3300 and 3231, will be available and may be completed at the event.

Only the above services will be performed at the school screenings. If a sports physical is needed, contact 327-7850 to schedule an appointment between July 27 and 31. 

For more information, contact Tech. Sgt. Konshinea Edwards at 327-9441.
