Health Promotion

Health Promotion is a free screening that offers health information and advice in the areas of nutrition, sun safety, bone density, tobacco cessation, and physical fitness. Health Promotion is designed to:

  • Convey and reinforce key concepts on healthy living, healthy lifestyle choices, and nation-specific health issues,
  • Improve the quality of life and self-image of athletes,
  • Provide the athletes the means by which they can work to better their own health and well-being,
  • Allow more people with intellectual disabilities to participate in Special Olympics and to retain those athletes who are currently active.
