County, nonprofit offer free sports physicals (July 19)


Keiki up to 18 years old can receive a free sports physical July 19 in Hilo under a partnership between Hawaii County, the nonprofit For Hearts and Souls and Sportz Viz.

The “No Athlete Left Behind” sports physical program will be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 19 at Panaewa Park.

Lead physician Dr. Kirk Milhoan, a Maui pediatric cardiologist and medical director of For Hearts and Souls, will perform sports physicals and echocardiographic screenings to rule out hidden conditions that could cause sudden cardiac arrest during strenuous activity.

Sportz Viz will take reservations for 25 athletes for each of four, two-hour blocks. Walk-in patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parents must bring the appropriate physical form for their child’s school or association.

Tax-deductible donations will be accepted and used to provide cardiac care to children throughout the world.

For further information, contact Thane Milhoan of Sportz Viz at (808) 938-6805 or
