Beyond Sports

Health Promotions®


The Health Promotion Program provides athletes with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to take charge of their own health. Health Promotion focuses on areas such as nutrition, blood pressure, bone health and bone density, sun safety, tobacco avoidance, hygiene and physical activity. Health Promotion uses interactive educational tools and displays, motivational literature, and demonstrations to heighten the awareness of athletes, all while reinforcing the need to improve and maintain an enhanced level of wellness and self-care.
