MedFest was created to offer the physical exam that all athletes
need prior to participating in Special Olympics sports programming.
It is sometimes the first exposure these athletes have to medical
care. In many cases, life-threatening conditions have been found
and subsequently treated thanks to MedFest. Led by volunteer
physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and medical students, the
MedFest screening consists of the following stations: medical
history, height and weight, blood pressure, cardiology test,
musculoskeletal test, orthopedic tests, abdominal evaluation, and a
check out station. For more information or for questions about the new MedFest form (below), contact Peyton
