Annual Health and Medical Record – (Valid for 12 calendar months)
The Boy Scouts of America recommends that all youth and adult members have annual medical evaluations by a certified and licensed health-care provider. In an effort to provide better care to those who may become ill or injured and to provide youth members and adult leaders a better understanding of their own physical capabilities, the Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered below in one three-part medical form.
Note that unit leaders must always protect the privacy of unit participants by protecting their medical information.

This new form goes into effect 1/1/10

**NOTE:  This does not sign off the First Aid Merit Badge – it only helps the scout work towards the First Aid Merit Badge.
