UPDATE ANNUAL HEALTH AND MEDICAL RECORD AVAILABLE
An updated BSA Annual Health and Medical Record (AHMR) is now available. Its use will be mandated by Jan. 1, 2014. The new form has several changes, including a bilingual format. Another feature is a scanable Part C, a pre-participation physical that will facilitate electronically capturing key data for faster intake at large events and camps, like the National Boy Scout Jamboree and the high adventure bases.
As always, careful planning went into the development of the updated version, with input coming from councils, volunteers, and the National Health and Safety Team. These revisions do not include any changes to BSA policy and will benefit everyone in Scouting, no matter what adventure is being planned.
Units should discard all older Health Form versions and start using the updated version immediately. Download at www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/ahmr.aspx.
