Over the course of six days, 93 volunteers organized by Emperor’s College treated over 2,200 athletes at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games. It was the first time that Oriental medicine had been made available to the athletes of any Special Olympics World Games. By all accounts, it was an enormous success, providing highly sought after treatments to the athletes and providing a transformative opportunity for the students and alumni of Emperor’s College to treat people from across the globe in what was the largest sports and humanitarian event in the world in 2015.
