Freebies at World-Class Golf Tournament

Whether it's heat stroke or even if you're stung by a bee, golf fans and star players won't have to look far for treatment.

Scripps Clinic is the official medical provider at the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines from Feb 2-8.  Urgent care specialists will be providing first-aid inside the medical tent on the North Course.

The Scripps Mobile Medical Unit, a 40-foot bus staffed with clinicians and equipped with basic health assessment and treatment tools, will be on standby to handle acute care needs on the South Course.  The 173-bed Scripps Green Hospital is nearby so is the 24-hour urgent care center.

Along the 18th fairway, clinicians will offer free skin cancer screenings and blood pressure checks. Golf fans on the go can grab bags filled with sunscreen, first-aid kits and protect lip balm as well as information about Scripps Clinic.
