Research and service
The WSU PAS program has been affiliated with Special Olympics of Detroit since 1998. We help provide pre-sport health appraisals for Detroit Public School Special Olympic athletes. These monthly health appraisal events serve the underrepresented minority (primarily African American) mentally and physically disabled population enrolled in Detroit Public Schools. The impact to this community has been tremendous. It has allowed approximately 1,200 athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities to participate in Special Olympics Detroit events.
MIU Men's Health Foundation
WSU PA students perform health screenings at the MIU annual Men's Health Event at Ford Field. Approximately 1,000 men are seen during the event that provides FREE health screenings including heart health, vision, dental, cancer screening, bloodwork, vaccinations and so much more!
