Healthy Athletes is "Powerful Work"

By Karyn Tan

In Pyeongchang to attend the Special Olympics World Winter Games and Global Development Summit, Australia’s Senator Jan McLucas, Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers, took time to support Team Australia’s athletes, and visited the Healthy Athletes Program in Kwandong University. Sen. McLucas shares her views on the Program, calling it "powerful work... that any potential health issue that has been identified is then followed up back in their home country."
