TERRE HAUTE - Indiana State University’s College of Health and Human Services will serve student-athletes’ health care and performance needs through its new Center for Sports Medicine and Performance. The center will focus on providing independent medical care for improving athletes’ performance.

The center will also combine Indiana State’s athletic training services and athletics strength and conditioning units while implementing recommendations by the NCAA Interassociation Consensus: Independent Medical Care for College Student-Athletes Best Practices. 

“The center builds on the deep history of athletic training education and practice at Indiana State University,” said Caroline Mallory, dean of the College of Health and Human Services, in a news release. “We expect the center to serve student athletes and provide excellent opportunities for students in our degree programs to access experiential learning opportunities.”
