Beitsch Appointed to ACC COVID-19 Medical Advisory Group
The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) announced its COVID-19 Medical Advisory Group, which includes one representative from each of its 15 institutions, including Dr. Leslie Beitsch, the chair of Behavioral Sciences & Social Medicine at Florida State.
"This group meets weekly and will assist our Presidents and Athletic Directors on the best protocols and procedures for returning to athletics as part of our institutions’ plans,” said John Swofford, the commissioner for the ACC. “The institutions of the ACC have long been leaders in the medical field and include many of the leading medical experts in the country, which is a tremendous asset for the conference and all its members. One of the great things you gain from being in a conference with a culture like ours is the opportunity to share best practices, and the Medical Advisory Group is a great example of that."
