On Sunday, February 26th, the rugby playing community were given a talk by the welfare staff. The talk began with an overview of the days presentations lead by the program's Physician, Dr David Kovacevic, MD. There are a great deal of change occurring and the players needed clarity on best course of action in all components of the welfare department. After David, the programs athletic trainers, Tony Simoes and Lauren Szmak discussed injury protocols and return to play policies. The final presentation was conducted by Mike Harris, CSCS, the Yale University Head of strength and conditioning. This presentation focused on 'nutrition for athletic performance'. We are very grateful for the staff giving up their Sunday to present to the players.
