CSU School of Nursing Volunteers with Special Olympics

The Columbus State University School of Nursing recently partnered with Columbus Regional Health’s Community Care mobile health unit to provide physicals for athletes competing in the Special Olympics local and state games. Faculty and staff at the school’s family nurse practitioner program completed 13 physicals at Pop Austin Gym, where there is a therapeutic recreation program for individuals with disabilities.

“It is important for our community agencies to work together to improve the health of individuals,” said Tamara Condrey, Associate Director of the School of Nursing. “This was a great collaboration that we hope to continue as an annual event.”
