Maryland Athletic Trainer’s Association Symposium 2021


“Managing Evolving Covid Related Stress in Athletics”

Presented by: Dr. Tim Herzog


Dr. Herzog had the opportunity to speak to the Maryland Athletic Trainer’s Association at their annual symposium. He spoke about the ever evolving nature of stress related to the Covid pandemic in the sporting world, and how this has impacted athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, families, and many other stakeholders. Dr. Herzog spoke about three key phases of the pandemic, the “oh shoot” initial phase, the phase of lockdown and ongoing cancellations, and this new phase of returning to sport and embracing a new “normal”.
