Tampa is getting graded on its level of health -- and the report card will be given out by none other than Dr. Oz.

The "Dr. Oz Show", a popular health program syndicated and broadcast nationwide, will be making a stop in Tampa on Thursday, July 12 to give 15 minute physicals to local residents.

Using tabletop blood test devices and Practice Fusion's Electronic Health Record system, Dr. Mehmet Oz will be giving free health screenings to about 1,000 people.

Medical data from the screenings will be analyzed on site and presented as a report card to the city of Tampa.

The physicals will take place at the Pepin Heart Institute, on the Florida Hospital Tampa campus.
