Cottonwood nurse practitioner Sue Albright and Yavapai College nursing students host free well-child exams and offer free school and sports physicals.

Albright, a national board certified nurse practitioner, holds the event from 9 a.m. to noon on the fourth Saturday of the month. The next clinic is Saturday, Feb. 23.
