Providing Health Services for the Most Underserved
The Special Olympics Healthy Athletes® program offers health services and information to athletes in dire need. In the process, Special Olympics has become the largest global public health organization dedicated to serving people with intellectual disabilities.
Special Olympics Michigan has been participating in Healthy Athletes® initiative for many years and strives to give our athletes health screenings and information about their health. Athletes are able to participate in all or some of the health screenings at State Basketball Finals, State Summer Games, State Fall Games, State Poly Hockey Finals and State Winter Games, as well as at select regional and local events.
