JSMP coordinates free pre-participation athletic screenings for student athletes in Duval County. Primary care physicians, orthopedic surgeons, cardiologists, pulmonologists, other medical specialists, physician assistants, and allied health professionals participate in the screenings.
Annually, our JSMP volunteer Physicians, Athletic Trainers and community volunteers provide athletic screenings for over 1100 student athletes. These screenings are provided at no charge to student athletes, most from homes with limited means. Each athlete travels through at least 12 stations and follow up care with individual family health care providers is encouraged when screenings indicate any potential problems which may impact the athlete’s participation in sports activities.
