Why are Regular Physicals Important for your Child?
Local physicians offer Joliet Slammers tickets with discounted school, sports and camp physicals
New Lenox, IL (June 5, 2015)—Another school season has come to an end. However, many parents have already found a letter in their child’s backpack or received an email from school alerting them of the required paperwork to start the next school year. For children entering kindergarten, second grade, sixth grade, and high school the instructions most likely included having physical and updated immunizations. Kids who will be attending summer camp or playing a sport may also need to see a doctor. To make it easy on parents, two local family practice physicians on staff at Silver Cross Hospital are offering discounted exams this summer. In addition, patients will receive two tickets to a Joliet Slammer baseball game of their choice.

But since losing over 135 pounds after having weight loss surgery with BMI Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital, Foster is enjoying life by eating healthier foods and exercising regularly.
