The Special Olympics Healthy Athletes is a worldwide health program designed to address the unique challenges that face many people with intellectual disabilities surrounding health care and communicating their health needs. This is completed through offering free health screenings and education to athletes. Many athletes and caregivers have been surprised to participate in a Healthy Athletes screening and discover health issues that have gone undiagnosed through regular health channels. SOO is working hard to improve athlete health initiatives such as the Healthy Athletes screenings because we know that if we can encourage individuals with an intellectual disability to become healthier, their personal health burden will decrease, and their physical abilities, athletic performances and overall quality of life will improve!
Health Screenings include Healthy Eyes, Healthy Hearing, Fit Feet, Healthy Smiles, and many more.
