UW-Eau Claire To Offer
Free Health Evaluation Clinics
MAILED: Sept. 11, 2000

          EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire School of Nursing will offer free health evaluation clinics for children up to 14 years old Monday, Oct. 2.
          The clinics will include a physical assessment, developmental screening, nutrition assessment, vision and hearing screening, and a review of the child's health history.
          Nursing graduate and undergraduate students conduct the clinics under the supervision of certified nurse practitioners. Supervisors will be available to sign physical examination forms for preschool, day care, kindergarten or camps. Referrals are made to appropriate resources as necessary.
          Students may follow the clinics with home visits to provide a summary of clinic findings and provide information on health and development topics of interest to the family.
          The clinics are paced to allow explanation of procedures to the child so it can be a positive experience with health care for the children. Parents should allow about two hours for the screenings.
          Limited appointments are available by calling (715) 836-5515.
