Issues in Higher Education Webinar Series

Please join Husch Blackwell and the U.S. Council for Athletes’ Health (USCAH) for a webinar focused on developing integrated approaches to student athlete healthcare.

Headlines highlight the need for qualified, independent medical care in college and university competitive and club sports. In this webinar, Husch Blackwell Education attorneys and USCAH medical professionals will consider appropriate roles and oversight—for coaches, strength and conditioning and sports performance personnel, athletic trainers, team physicians, and student athletes themselves—in managing health, privacy, and other challenging issues. Speakers will discuss potential pitfalls, necessary practices, and cultural improvements your institution can make to promote athlete wellbeing while mitigating institutional risk.
