Dr. Farris leads Special Olympics’ FUNfitness training

August 26, 2019
Posted In: Arizona Campus, ASHS, Faculty & Staff Headlines

Jim Farris, PT, PhD, chair of physical therapy at A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS), recently led a FUNfitness training for Special Olympics Arizona. Clinicians from across the U.S. and Canada traveled to the Arizona Summer Games for training on how to administer a Healthy Athletes screening. Dr. Farris led the FUNfitness screening, or physical fitness, portion of the training, which addresses the ongoing health needs of Special Olympics athletes.

“It was an honor to be able to train six other physical therapists to be clinical directors for the Special Olympics FUNfitness program,” says Dr. Farris. “The best part is that each one went back to their home state or province and conducted a FUNfitness screening during their local summer games, which helped to improve the health of Special Olympic athletes across the nation and in Canada. They even sent me pictures from their events.”
