Colorado and UNC Joint Study Shows High School Athletes Suffer from Preventable Heat Illnesses

Despite their awareness of the dangers of heatstroke, trainers in most high school football programs still do not employ the most effective measures to manage the condition. These are the findings of a new study, “Exertional Heath Stroke Management Strategies in United States High School Football,” led by Mr. Zachary Kerr, epidemiology doctoral candidate at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health. The study was co-authored by Dr. Dawn Comstock, associate professor of epidemiology at the Colorado School of Public Health.
