On July 19, 2015, Therapy Center partnered with health care professionals to provide physicals for local junior high and high school student athletes. The day was a great success with over 200 students participating, representing nine parish schools (Jennings High, Elton High, Bethel Christian, O.L.I., Welsh High, Lake Arthur High, Lacassine High, Hathaway High, and Midland High). “Being a part of the local community is what it is all about,” stated Jake Duhon, Director of Sports Medicine for the Therapy Center.
Therapy Center believes that evaluation and screening during physicals lays the foundation for successful on-field performance. We would like to thank Dr. Christopher Achee, Dr. James McNally, Dr. Rick Edwards, Dr. Ryan Edwards and Dr.Johnny Segura for their assistance in screening as well as Nurse Practitioners Yvonne Krielow, Tina Molezun, Matt Vincent and John Lamb, RN with Jennings American Legion Hospital. We also express our sincerest appreciation to the nearly 30 Therapy Center staff , volunteers and PT students that assisted in making this year’s event a success.
