In Memory of Jim Balamaci

AADMD INFO BLAST - For AADMD Members and Friends

We are saddened by the news of the passing of our friend and colleague Jim Balamaci. Jim was the leader and soul of Special Olympics Alaska and a passionate pioneer in the Healthy Athletes Program. He was a promoter of research, education and practices in studying the aging athlete with ID/DD. He will be missed both personally and professionally. His legacy lives on with the AADMD and our pursuit of health and inclusion for all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
