SEC Adding Sideline Medical Reviews this Season

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.
