“This is the best issue yet,” said Holt Hackney, the managing editor of SML. “There’s so much happening in this practice area between COVID-19, concussions, and athlete abuse. It’s never been more important for teams, colleges, associations, athletic trainers, and others to be conscious about keeping those they are responsible for safe, while at the same time limiting their own liability exposure.”
