Healthcare Provider Directory for Athlete Follow-Up Care
During a Special Olympics Healthy Athletes® screening or exam, our volunteer healthcare providers often suggest that the athlete see a doctor, dentist, podiatrist (foot doctor), audiologist (hearing specialist), or ophthalmologist (eye doctor), for reasons outlined on the Report Card that is given to the athlete at the exam.
To assist you with finding a health provider that lives near you, we have created a Resource Directory for each of the 6 disciplines. If you have trouble locating one of these health providers or someone from your community, please feel free to contact us or your county director, as they also may know a medical provider in your community.
