Before Jr. High students hit the football field, basketball court or the track next year they must take a physical. And on Wednesday a local clinic brought their services to Lincoln Middle School for their athletes. "It is imperative that these kids have a safe and normal life as possible," CEO of La Esperanza Clinic, Mike Campbell says. La Esperanza Clinic and Lincoln Middle School made sure that incoming 7th and 8th grade athletes are in their best health for the upcoming sports season. Lincoln Middle School Coach, Rory Manuel knows how essential these physicals are for their athletes. "Just because their jumping around, you think that they're fine. But until a Dr. does an exam, someone an expert that can pick up the thing that you just can't see on the day to day basis. Yes, it's very dangerous if not taken or not detected," Manuel says. 10 staff members from La Esperanza Clinic brought their clinic to the Lincoln Middle school gymnasium for a exam from head to toe. A procedure that incoming 7th Grader, Miaesha Brown went through. "We have to do our weight, and our height and our blood pressure and now I'm going to the Doctor." In order for these students to participate in Jr. High athletics they must have this exam, which can even play an essential role for them down the road of life. "We want to get these kids in tune with their bodies, to understand it doesn't mean that you're more of a human, more of a man or more of a girl to ignore those things. Take care of your body, you're taking care of our future," Campbell says.
