“In terms of what’s unique about us here is that this whole team is integrated together and we’re communicating with each other all the time,” said Parker, who emphasized the importance of adjusting the educational experience for athletes when they are experiencing challenges due to unexpected injuries, a service that is provided to athletes at King.
“It’s especially important when we have something like a concussion or a major injury that is keeping a student out of the classroom or not performing the way they want to be,” she added. Click the video on this page to watch the full panel discussion and Q&A.
