May 10, 2014- Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine will be hosting the 7th annual Fleur de Physicals at Hertz Center on Tulane University Campus. This program supports "at risk" high school age students, whose families may not otherwise be able to afford a sports physical. Without a physical, they would not be able to participate in organized team sports. Last year over 700 young athletes and their families were supported by this program.
