Live Healthy Education Fairs
Live Healthy Education Fairs are an extension of the Healthy Athletes clinics offered by Special Olympics Arkansas.
Different from the screenings at the Healthy Athletes clinics, live healthy education fairs are purely informative hands on training segment of healthy athletes. Despite a mistaken belief that people with intellectual disabilities receive the same or better health care than others, they typically receive sub-standard care or virtually no health care at all. In an effort to expand the reach with healthy athletes Special Olympics Arkansas launched live healthy education fairs in 2014.
Goal: Increase knowledge of Health and Wellness for Special Olympics Arkansas community.
Goal: Expand Healthy Athletes reach to Area and Regional activities.
Goal: Create a network of volunteers throughout the health care field.
Each live healthy fair contains at least 2 educational topics for athletes and caregivers to learn about as they move through the fair. Educational topics may include: Nutrition, Hand Washing, Sun Safety, Dental, Hydration, Bone Health, Smoke Cessation, and Fitness.
