Healthy Athletes Screening
December 5, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PST
Healthy Athletes Screenings provides free, fun screenings and education for people with intellectual disabilities in a variety of medical disciplines. Through Healthy Athletes, health care professionals receive formalized training about the specific health care concerns of people with intellectual disabilities and how to ask the right questions, helping them draw out issues. Their interactions with Special Olympics athletes lead to referrals back into the health care system that ensure the individuals will get the treatment they need.
