UNTHSC volunteers provide free physicals to local Boy Scout troop
The event took place during the troops’ regular scheduled meeting at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth.
All Boy Scout members are required to receive a physical, and not all insurance carriers cover the exam.
The effort was led by Darrin D’Agostino, DO, MPH, Chairman of Internal Medicine.
“All scouts are required to have annual physical exams for a number of reasons,” Dr. D’Agostino said. “Because of the financial burden on many families, we feel this is a great service we can provide to the youth in our community. The TCOM students are wonderful assets and help us promote healthy lifestyles.”
