East Jefferson General Hospital Sports Medicine
In order to meet Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) eligibility requirements, it is mandatory for all students participating in Co-Curricular Athletics to have a LHSAA Medical History Evaluation and Physical Form completed and signed by a licensed Physician or Nurse Practitioner. To simplify this process, the Academy of the Sacred Heart Athletic Department and East Jefferson General Hospital Sports Medicine will be offering a comprehensive physical/orthopedic screening on campus for all students, currently in grades 4 - 11, who will be trying-out or participating on any athletic team or cheerleading. The physical will include a general medical evaluation by an East Jefferson doctor of family medicine, Dr. Clayton Mazoue and an orthopedic assessment and evaluation by Dr. Charles Haddad, Pontchartrain Bone and Joint Clinic. Dr. Haddad is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. During the 2010 - 2011 school year, both Dr. Haddad and Dr. Mazoue will be available, as needed, for consultation, evaluation and treatment of any injured student/athlete. The availability of Dr. Haddad and Dr. Mazoue, allows the Academy of the Sacred Heart to offer a comprehensive sports medicine program, headed by Jason Aucoin, M.A., ATC/L, to ensure the safety and health of all ASH student/athletes.
The physical/orthopedic screening will take place on Wednesday, May 12th beginning at 3:00pm. Refer to the schedule below to determine what time to report for your physical/orthopedic screening.
