Additional Information

MedFest was created to offer the physical exam that all athletes need prior to participating in Special Olympics sports. Screenings assess blood pressure, temperature, pulse, height, weight, body mass index, vision, hearing, medical history, potential medication side effects and general physical health. Across the world, it is sometimes the first exposure these athletes have to medical care. The MEDFest program has since become one of the most effective tools for global growth for Special Olympics.
