Free Back To School Checkups for Kids in Johnson County

Back to School Health Checkups
As part of National Health Center Week, Aug. 11-17, 2013, UnitedHealthcare will celebrate with the Health Partnership Clinic of Johnson County in Olathe, Kansas by offering free back-to-school physicals for children 18 years and younger.  This special one-time event will be themed based on the popular Sesame Street initiative, “Food for Thought: Eating Healthy on a Budget”.  Physicals will be offered on a “first come, first serve” basis and administered by licensed healthcare professionals on Thursday, Aug. 15, from 12 p.m. to  8 p.m. at Health Partnership Clinic of Johnson County, 407 S. Claireborne Rd., Suite 104, Olathe, Kansas 66062.  Appointments will not be accepted. The event includes “Food for Thought” activities, and organizers will provide “Food for Thought” snacks to children receiving physicals.

Launched in December 2010, Food for Thought: Eating Healthy on a Budget is a bilingual (English-Spanish) multimedia outreach initiative that supports families who have children between the ages of two and eight cope with uncertain or limited access to affordable and nutritious food, also known as food insecurity. The Food for Thought kits were produced with funding and partnership support from UnitedHealthcare and The Merck Company Foundation.

The National Center for Education Statistics reported over 55.1 million students attended public and private elementary and secondary schools in 2012. The need for back-to-school physicals is in high demand, and UnitedHealthcare is working to accommodate those needs.
