Healthy Community is a premier, health care delivery approach that focuses on the whole person with an intellectual or developmental disability and provides integrated health care coordination.
The Healthy Community program is part of Special Olympics Florida designed to help meet the unmet needs of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (ID/DD), and to keep them healthy. We currently offer free health screenings to individuals with ID/DD in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties in the following areas: Special Smiles (dentistry) , Healthy Hearing (audiology), Fit Feet (podiatry), FUNfitness (physical therapy) , Health Promotion (better health and well-being through the Nutrition & Wellness Program and educational events), MedFest (sports physical/medical exam) , and Opening Eyes (vision). We are committed to assisting our consumers with finding the services and resources that they require based on screening results.
