Irish Athletes Get Checked Out At Healthy Athletes Program

While the focus of the 2014 European Games is very much on sports, athletes are also getting free health screening checks from more than 300 medical professional volunteers as part of the Healthy Athletes Program. Team Ireland athlete Carrie Doyle was certainly making the most of the Program which aims to improve every athlete’s health and fitness in order to enhance their ability to train and compete and ultimately to improve the athlete’s well-being in daily life. 26 year old Carrie from Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, who is a table-tennis athlete, took the opportunity to get a check-up from the dedicated medical volunteers working at the Games. All participating athletes have access to free health check services in seven clinical disciplines. Fit Feet (podiatry), FUNfitness (physical therapy), Health Promotion (better health and well-being), Healthy Hearing (audiology), MedFest (sports physical exam), Opening Eyes (vision) and Special Smiles (dentistry).
