Sr. Ricca Dimalibot and Nurse Practitioner, Andres Gil, provided free Sports Physicals. Sr. Lelia McNamara and Liana Merrill helped with registration.

The CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinic administered immunizations to many children in the Dickinson area, many of whom were affected by hurricane Harvey. Amegy Bank funded the school supplies. There were many volunteers including CHRISTUS Provider Group staff from Beaumont, Texas. The CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinic will return in September to provide more immunizations to children.
