Healthy Communities Project
The Special Olympics Healthy Communities Project is a
three-year initiative. It serves to raise awareness
around the issue of health disparities facing people with
ID, foster development focused on delivering care to
people with ID, and ultimately create communities
where Special Olympics athletes and others with ID have
the same access to health and wellness resources and
can attain the same level of good health as others.
Family Health Forums are one initiative that provide
athletes, coaches, and caregivers direct access to
relevant healthcare information and resources.
