SMITH COUNTY, Texas, March 29, 2022 /PRNewsire/ — Goodside Health today announced the start of its second Whole Child Physicals campaign with its first serving at Arp Independent School District. Available as part of the SchoolMed program, Whole Child Physicals combine the standard preparticipation sports physical with a suite of wellness related offerings that will be provided to more than 10,000 students throughout the spring and summer.
“Sports physicals play a fundamental role in ensuring that students are medically ready to take part in the extracurricular activities they enjoy the most,” said Matt Balthazar, Goodside Health Vice President of SchoolMed Operations. “By pairing the standard sports physical with a program that focuses on both physical and mental health and wellness, Whole Child Physicals are empowering students to lead healthier lives at as early an age as possible.”
Goodside Health, the leading provider of in-school telehealth, virtual family care, and clinic-based pediatric urgent care, has enhanced the Whole Child Physicals program following a well-received inaugural campaign in 2021.
This year, Whole Child Physicals feature the standard sports preparticipation physical and services that focus on mental health, nutrition, and substance use, as well as others.
“The reception we received from our district partners last year inspired our team to enhance the program in a way that better meets the needs of the students and families we are so proud to serve through SchoolMed,” added Balthazar.
