MinuteClinic, a division of CVS Caremark and the largest and fastest growing provider of walk-in medical clinics in the United States, announced today a joint marketing and sponsorship agreement with USAFootball, football’s national governing body.

As part of this agreement, MinuteClinic has been named USA Football’s official sports physical provider.

Through the affiliation, all USA Football members, who reside in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., can receive a special discount when they obtain their sports physical at MinuteClinic year-round. 

“USA Football is a national leader and innovator in promoting health and safety among youth athletes, which sets a standard for football organizations and other sports to follow,” said Nancy Gagliano, M.D., MinuteClinic chief medical officer. “We are proud to be associated with a like-minded organization that puts player safety first and shares in our goal to help youth athletes stay healthy and play their best.”

“It’s important for young athletes to get checked before the start of a new season,” said Dr. Patrick Kersey, USA Football medical director and physician for Indianapolis-based St. Vincent Sports Performance. “Sports physicals play an important role in identifying high-risk disorders or conditions that might affect an athlete’s health and safety.”
