King’s Daughters physician assistant Leslie Elliott will provide on-site physicals for 6thgrade students at East Carter Middle School and West Carter Middle School per the following schedule:

East Carter Middle School, 1 Spirit Lane, Grayson

  • Tuesday, Aug. 2 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

West Carter Middle School, 150 Warrier Drive, Olive Hill

  • Monday, Aug. 8 from noon to 7 p.m.

Parents or guardians must call (606) 475-5500 to schedule appointments for their children. For students to receive access, parents must complete a patient packet giving the Walk-In Care team permission to treat the student. Care is billed to each patient’s insurance, just like a regular visit to the physician’s office.

The physicals are part of King’s Daughters new Walk-In Care for Schools initiative that brings a dedicated medical provider to school systems for the healthcare of students, faculty and staff. The Carter County program’s medical director is pediatrician Jonathan Maynard, M.D.

Other schools participating in the Walk-In Care for Schools program are those in the Ashland Independent, Boyd County and Fairview Independent school districts.

King’s Daughters Walk-In Care team will visit each school regularly and be available to schools via telemedicine stations. The initiative is designed to promote physical, mental, social and emotional health for students, families, faculty and staff resulting in fewer missed school/work days, faster access to care, fewer emergency room visits, better management of chronic diseases and improved academic performance.
