To help combat and prevent Las Vegas Valley student-athletes from experiencing a life-threatening injury, the LV Sportz Foundation, in conjunction with First Person Care Clinic and other local community organizations and medical professionals, is hosting an affordable and accessible pre-participation sports physicals and heart screening program event. Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys is an official sponsor of the Saturday, September 6, event that will run from 10 am to 3 pm at Cashman Convention Center.
“Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys is pleased to give back for the second year in a row and join LV Sportz Foundation, First Person Care Clinic and other local community organizations and medical professionals in supporting this free sports physicals and heart screenings program event to help protect Las Vegas Valley student-athletes,” said Attorney Glen Lerner.
