In Philadelphia, free health screenings are offered at events like MedFest, where doctors, nurses and other medical professionals volunteer their time and expertise. Special Olympics PA-Philadelphia athletes can also attend Health Athletes expos at select state-level competitions.
Developed in 1997, Special Olympics Healthy Athletes ® is a program that provides a variety of free health screenings ranging from dental to vision, nutrition or hearing. These screenings are offered in a fun, welcoming environment that removes the anxiety and trepidation people with intellectual disabilities often experience when faced with a visit to a doctor or dentist.
