Wellness Wednesdays to Run Through 2022
Partnership with Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative Promotes Healthy Lifestyles
Our popular Wellness Wednesdays seminars are back and will throughout the remainder of the year. The program, a partnership between Special Olympics Kentucky and the Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative, provides information on exercise, healthy diet and other healthy lifestyle choices.
Sessions are offered the third Wednesday of every month beginning at noon via zoom. They are led by a mix of Special Olympics Athlete Leaders, Healthy Athletes clinical directors and Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative staff. Every session will last between 30 minutes and an hour. You must register in advance, but you only need to register once and you will receive reminders for the remaining sessions.
Upcoming Topics To Be Announced
“We are happy to have the opportunity to continue our Wellness Wednesday series with the help of the Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative,” said Special Olympics Kentucky Health Services Manager Kelli Firquin. “This has been a great way to reach athletes where they are and help provide ideas on how to live healthier lives, especially in situations where they sometimes can’t participate in Special Olympics the way they traditionally have.”
Wellness Wednesday got its start in 2020 near the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic and has remained a valuable part of our outreach to athletes and their families.
