In order for athletes to perform at their best, both on and off the playing field, we believe promoting a healthy life style to our athletes is critical to their success.  The Healthy Athletes program is dedicated to providing health services and education to Special Olympics athletes and changing the way health systems interact wth people with intellectual disabilities. Our Summer Games was the perfect venue to introduce and educate our athletes on healthy living. 

The Healthy Athlete clinics was offered on Saturday, June 22nd from 12 noon - 6:00 pm in the ARC Pavilion. The athletes rotatde through different stations and learn about proper health care from trained clinicians for each of the disciplines offered. 

Special Olympics Health, made possible by the Golisano Foundation in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
