Our team has built a strong partnership with Special Olympics Kentucky (SOKY) in providing the resources, personnel, and services needed to promote and grow their health promotion efforts across the state. This includes offering health promotion programming including specific opportunities at SOKY events to educate athletes on making healthy lifestyle choices. Athletes are also supported to be strong advocates and health messengers to encourage others to make health a priority.

Wellness Wednesdays

Starting in 2020, SOKY and The Human Development Institute‘s Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative (KIHC) partnered to provide an online program for Special Olympics athletes across the state of Kentucky called Wellness Wednesdays. Wellness Wednesdays provide an ongoing virtual space for athletes to socially connect and learn about topics in health and wellness.
