Beyond Sports

Family Health Forums

Family Health Forums provide a space for families and caregivers to engage with health professionals, community leaders, and social service providers. The Forums introduce new families to Special Olympics Tennessee and services provided through Healthy Athletes, Young Athletes, and other community-based programs for people with intellectual disabilities, while also surfacing challenges that athletes and families face and how best to overcome them—with a special focus on bettering access to health care, education, and inclusive activities.

Family Health Forums are informed by Tennessee communities to meet their needs. Contact Aisha Eiger, Health Manager, at aeiger@specialolympicstn.org to learn more or discuss your thoughts about possible health topics you would like to see covered.
