* The screen is one of Dance USA's Task Force initiatives to improve health care for the professional dancer (sign-up required).
Dancers move through a series stations for a preventative physical health examination with PT and medical specialists. Some of the stations include: height and weight measurements, aerobic testing, hip rotation and flexibility. You then receive a one-on-one assessment based on the information from the screening and are provided appropriate local referrals with whom they can pursue ongoing medical attention and services should they choose to do so.
**Information Tables & Workshops
Information tables will be overseen by other health professionals focusing on needs such as nutrition, sexual health, emotional and financial well-being. Since the event is taking place during the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period—in state through Covered California—The Actors Fund will be on hand to help attendees navigate through the various insurance options as well.
