MedFest – April 1st 2023

 Special Olympics MA MedFest!

What is MedFest!

MedFest was created to offer the physical exam that all athletes need prior to participating in Special Olympics sports programming. MedFest is led by volunteer physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and medical students.

MedFest screenings have found that a large percentage of Special Olympics athletes have significant health concerns that are preventable and/or treatable.

The goals of MedFest include:

  •  Offer a free sports physical and other health examination services to people with intellectual disabilities.
  • Assist new athletes joining Special Olympics.
  • Foster new partnerships between Special Olympics and the community. Provide physicians, nurses and other health care providers with training and specialized experience in the caring for people with intellectual disabilities.
