Did back-to-school sneak up on you like it did on KELOLAND Living’s Ashley Thompson this year? It feels like the kids just got out of school and they are already heading back to class. There’s a lot to get done and back-to-school physicals are near the top of the list.

Dr. Bruce Larkin is a resident physician with the Center for Family Medicine in Sioux Falls.

He joined us to tell us why back-to-school physicals are so important and what to look for when your child says they can’t go to school because they’re not feeling well.
