The Healthy Athletes initiative is dedicated to providing health services and education to Special Olympics athletes, and changing the way health systems interact with people with intellectual disabilities. Through free health screenings, training for healthcare professionals, and evaluation of the health status of people with intellectual disabilities, Healthy Athletes has become a powerful public health organization worldwide. Special Olympics Wyoming currently offers health screenings in three areas: FUNfitness (physical therapy), Opening Eyes (vision) and Special Smiles (dentistry).
Please fill out the Healthy Athletes Permission form and return it to Special Olympics Wyoming or bring it to the event!
We are continuously looking for additional Healthy Athletes opportunities to offer a better experience for our athletes, this includes recruiting Clinical Directors to help run screenings. Please see the resources on the right about job descriptions.
