Shriners Hospitals for Children is sponsoring free pediatric screenings on Saturday in Modesto for orthopedic (related to bones, joints or muscles), spinal and burn deformities. Children 18 and younger will be evaluated for possible medical treatment — at no cost to their families — at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Sacramento.
The screening will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Medical Plaza, 1800 Coffee Road. No appointment is necessary. Parents should bring copies of their child’s medical records, Social Security number, birth certificate, dated immunization records and, if applicable, divorce decree and custody agreement. Children should wear bathing suits under their street clothes.
