Description

BIRMINGHAM (July 22, 2011) - The Adolescent Health Center at Children's of Alabama (1600 5th Ave. S.) is currently offering sports physicals to Middle and High School students (ages 11-18) as a service to the community.

The cost is $20, due at the time of service, and an appointment is required. A parent or legal guardian must accompany their child. For more information, or to make an appointment, please call 205.939.9141.

The Adolescent Health Center at Children's Hospital is named after the late Dr. William A. Daniel Jr.(1914-1998). Dr. Daniel was the founder of the UAB Division of Adolescent Medicine and one of the originators of the subspecialty of adolescent medicine. At the Center more than 1,200 teenagers and young adults are seen each year by a team of health professionals (physicians, nutritionists, psychologists and social workers) specially trained to handle their unique problems.

Children's of Alabama is the only medical center in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children and is one of the 10 busiest pediatric medical centers in the nation. It is a private, not-for-profit hospital that serves as the primary site of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) pediatric medicine, surgery, research and residency programs. Ten of its divisions - pulmonology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, neonatology, cancer, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology and nephrology-are ranked in the Top 50 Children's Hospital Programs by US News & World Report.
