Despite a mistaken belief that people with intellectual disabilities receive the same or better health care than others, they typically receive sub-standard care or virtually no health care at all.
Healthy Athletes currently offers health examinations in seven areas: Fit Feet (podiatry), FUNfitness (physical therapy), Health Promotion (better health and well-being), Healthy Hearing (audiology), MedFest (sports physical exam), Opening Eyes (vision) and Special Smiles (dentistry). Healthy Athletes organizes its events in a welcoming, fun environment. Its exams educate athletes on healthy lifestyle choices and identify problems that may need additional follow-up.
