Family Health Forum teaches Athletes how to Stay Safe on Social Media

February 24, 2014

Due to extremely cold temperatures at Nine Mile Forest and Granite Peak in Wausau, Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) cancelled snowshoe racing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding and alpine skiing competitions scheduled for Jan. 25-26; however many families and athletes attended the Family Health Forum on Friday, as well as dinner and a dance Saturday night which had more than 200 in attendance.

During the forum, Pam Malin, Disability Specialist for C.A.R.E.S and Tony Zblewski, Stevens Point Police Department Detective,  presented “Social Media: How to Have Fun and Be Safe,”  and educated athletes and family members of all age groups about the health and wellness of people with intellectual disabilities

According to Jenn Streator, SOWI’s Director of Field Services, “Pam and Tony had the audience energized and engaged throughout the forum sharing important tips about social media, even adults who have used social media in the past walked away learning something new and useful.”
