Interprofessional team of ATSU faculty and staff support Arizona athletes at 2018 Special Olympic Games

September 17, 2018
Posted In: Arizona Campus, ASHS, Athletic Training, Faculty & Staff Headlines

The torch lit at the Special OlympicsBart Anderson, DHSc, MS, AT, ATC, ’03 associate professor of athletic training at ATSU-ASHS; and his wife, Natasha Anderson, ATC, clinical preceptor for the master of science in athletic training program at ATSU-ASHS, formed a medical and health team for Arizona’s Special Olympics team during the most recent Olympic Games held in Seattle.

FUNfitness was developed by a group of physical therapists from the American Physical Therapy Associate for Special Olympics athletes.

Dr. Anderson and Natasha joined to form the medical and health team. While Special Olympics provides full medical coverage for the games, Arizona’s delegation is one of the largest at 137 athletes, partners, coaches, and administrators, and the CEO of Special Olympics Arizona wanted to have a team to work directly with the state’s athletes.

The medical and health team began their journey with the athletes during training camp the weekend before the games. They traveled and lived with the athletes, coaches, and others during the five days of games in the Seattle area.
