An average athlete visits 50 different physicians with little, if any, results. If these health issues are untreated as minor illnesses they could become life-threatening and thus creating a health crisis of epidemic proportions. Did you know? Special Olympics is the largest health provider for individuals with intellectual disabilities in the world. We have trained more than 120,000 health professionals in 7 disciplines and have conducted over 1.2 million health screenings globally.
