The Ocracoke Health Center, 305 Back Rd., will hold free sports physical clinics on Tuesday, May 17, to Thursday, May 19, between 3 and 5 p.m. all three days, for all 2016 to 2017 sports.

This will be the only clinic day to provide free physicals for the upcoming school year.

In order to be fair to scheduled patients and to continue to offer this free service, if physicals are not done at this time, they will be the financial responsibility of the patient/parent.

Please bring your completed and signed permission/physical examination form.

Forms should be completed before arrival.

If you have questions, please call the Ocracoke Health Center at 928-1511.
