Kristin is Senior Director of Global Health Programs at Special Olympics. She is passionate about #inclusivehealth and ensuring people with intellectual disabilities have access to health care, resources and services.
The world changed in 2020. Isolation, fear, overloaded health systems, and food insecurity continue to plague the world through the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has especially made things difficult for people with intellectual disabilities (ID). Significant health disparities have been further exacerbated for those with ID. Special Olympics Health has been working hard to address these disparities.
