SCAN DPG: Vitamin Ds Proposed Role in COVID-19 and the Management of Athletes

The resumption of professional sports has cast a spotlight on the relationship between athletes and COVID-19. This session will review the current literature on this relationship, including clarifying the impact of COVID-19 on athletes and discussing immunology of vitamin D that may impact prevention of COVID-19 in athletes. Speakers will use the current evidence base to recommend vitamin D dosing strategies for athletes who have tested positive and determine methods for incorporating recovering athletes into a return-to-play protocol. Speakers will also outline a team-based approach to providing athlete care in an NCAA Division 1 setting.
