CORE will be partnering with former NFL player Chuck Wiley to provide physical exams at his “99 Wayz 2 Win” football camp. This event will take place on Friday, June 23rd, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Southern Lab School in Baton Rouge. We will be checking blood pressure levels and heart & lung sounds, as well as performing neurological and musculoskeletal exams so that the kids participating in this camp can play school sports.

Please sign up using the link below (we will need a LOT of volunteers to make this event successful!!). Since the screening is in Baton Rouge, we will try to coordinate car pooling for those interested.
