UIL Athletic Physicals and Free Heart Screenings at Methodist Mansfield Medical for S. Grand Prairie High School Athletes
Mansfield Independent School District (MISD), Midlothian Independent School District, and South Grand Prairie High School Athletic Departments are partnering with Methodist Mansfield Medical Center - Mansfield, TX to offer UIL sports physicals to middle and high school student athletes. Physicals and echocardiograms will take place at the following locations.
- Mansfield ISD - Methodist Mansfield Medical Center - April 14, 2018 - 9 a.m. – Noon
- Midlothian ISD - Heritage High School, Midlothian - May 19, 2018 - 9 a.m. - Noon
- S. Grand Prairie HS – Methodist Convenient Care Clinic - June 2, 2018 - 9 a.m. - Noon
The hospital will also offer free, optional echocardiogram screenings at each location with an appointment. During an echocardiogram, an ultrasound is used to examine the heart, so physicians can detect potential abnormalities or other cardiovascular conditions that may affect student athletes. This echocardiogram test has saved 13 lives in the nine years the hospital has offered them.
The sports physicals and echocardiogram screenings will be performed by volunteer nurses, allied health professionals, and independently practicing physicians from Methodist Mansfield. Sports echos will be led by Alan Taylor, MD, and Levi Rice, DO, cardiologist on the medial staff at Methodist Mansfield. Jeff McDaniel, MD, and Juan Gavalda, MD, will lead the team of physicians in performing the sports physicals.
