Medfest

MedFest was created to offer the physical exam that all athletes need prior to participating in Special Olympics sports programming. It is sometimes the first exposure these athletes have to medical care.

In many cases, life-threatening conditions have been found and subsequently treated thanks to MedFest. Led by volunteer physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and medical students, the MedFest screening stations assess blood pressure, temperature, pulse, height, weight, body mass index, vision, medical history, potential medication side effects and general physical health.
