During last month’s SEC Football Media Days the conference’s chief medical advisor Dr. Katie O’Neal discussed the latest protocols the conference is taking for its student-athletes. The newest feature in football will be sideline medical reviews.
These reviews will be supplemented by the medical observers that are on-site at each game in the conference.
O’Neal adds mental health continues to be a focus for student-athletes.
O’Neal was named the SEC’s Chief Medical Advisor last May.
