FUNfitness Featured on U.S. HHS Dept Website

As a way of calling attention to the crucial work being done on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities by volunteer physical therapists working with FUNfitness and the American Physical Therapy Association, global clinical advisors for the discipline authored a blog post featured on health.gov. The article provides a history of FUNfitness, examines successes to date, and spurs the physical therapy field to do more. "We challenge PTs to become more involved in their communities and to include people with intellectual disability who are frequently underserved by health promotion efforts."
