Local health experts say parents who don't have kids in sports should also make sure their children get regular physicals. This time of year many sports families are scrambling to get that mandatory physical. School Based Health Care Supervisor, Elaine Severson says its also a good time to get the non-athletes to see a doctor: "We know that parents have a tendency to taper off on these. In fact in 2010, 54% of 8th graders in Deschutes County reported not having received a medical check-up in the previous year."  If your child needs a physical, Deschutes County is offering a special clinic for students in Sisters on August 31st from 1 to 6.

Severson says its a walk in clinic and insurance will be billed but if you don't have insurance or can't pay for it the unpaid balances will not be charged.
