HOUSTON — “Online classes are okay, but I miss my friends,” is the most common sentiment heard from students who came for a free sports physical at CHRISTUS Point of Light Clinic (CPOLC) Aug. 7.

The Healthy Living Mobile Clinic staff with Sister Leila McNamara, CCVI, came to give immunizations at the clinic. CHRISTUS Foundation staff and several volunteers kept patients’ flow manageable while making sure that spatial distancing, careful sanitizing and temperature checks are all observed.

Each student that visited the clinic received a backpack filled with school supplies, including a free T-shirt. CPOLC will continue to distribute the surplus giveaways for the rest of the month.

This program is made possible through the help of the donors and the support of the sisters.
