Before sharpening pencils and buying new and improved school supplies, Evanston students of all ages must have a physical exam before walking down the school hallways.

To make this both easy and accessible, Evanston Township High School’s Health Center, 1600 Dodge Ave., will be giving free physical exams all summer long for students who are part of Districts 65 and 202 schools. In order to get a physical,
an appointment must be made by calling 847-424-7265.

 For those who are not a part of Districts 65 and 202, the City of Evanston’s Health Department recommends neighboring entities that also give free physical exams.

Access Evanston-Rogers Park Family Health Center, located at 1555 West
Howard St., is open Monday through
Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the first and third Saturdays of every month, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information or to make an appointment, call 733-764-7146.

An alternative is Heartland International Health Clinic, located at 1015
West Lawrence Ave. in Chicago. To
