Sports Medicine Annual Letter

The Committee on Sports Medicine of the Iowa Medical Society, and the Iowa High School Athletic Association, have been partners for many years in protecting the health, wellness, and safety of interscholastic student-athletes. Part of those efforts is our annual mailing to physicians. This is our twenty-third annual physician mailing.

We hope the following information, and web links, will be of special interest as you provide care for student-athletes in your area of the state, particularly in the face of the persistent COVID-19 pandemic. With the evolving presence of COVID-19 in our communities, we anticipate that future updates and communications may be needed to keep us all best informed as knowledge and guidance advances.

We encourage you to share this information with any Allied Health Professionals who may assist you in caring for young athletes.
