Roe to Rio: OhioHealth nurse shares her experiences at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games

If you're a fan of OhioHealth on Facebook and Instagram, there's a good chance you saw the 2016 Olympic Games through the eyes of Teresa Roe, RN, Care Coordinator at OhioHealth Physician Group.

Earlier this year, Teresa was accepted by the 2016 Olympic Committee as a volunteer medical team member at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil. The application process began in 2014 and Teresa had to learn Portuguese to be considered for the honor. She was one of 50,000 volunteer medical people accepted out of 270,000 applicants worldwide.

So when Teresa shared she'd be traveling to Rio, the #RoetoRio Instagram takeover was born, and we got to watch Teresa's adventures at the 2016 Olympic Games.

Earlier this week, we caught up with Teresa, to hear about the most memorable parts of the Olympics, and find out what made the most impact on her.

Not only did OhioHealth want to document Teresa's trip, but The Columbus Dispatch took interest in getting her perspective on the games. You can read the paper's story by clicking on the logo. 

Thank you, Teresa, for sharing your adventures with us!!
