How the SARS-CoV-2 Virus is Transforming Sports Medicine

You may be one of our loyal readers in the UK about to begin a three-day bank holiday, or one of our USA readers about to enjoy your own long weekend celebrating Memorial Day.

Or you may be one of our many readers in other spots of the globe going into a ‘regular’ weekend, but what does any of this mean anymore?  Two day weekend, three day weekend?  Might we not even have work to go back to, and who is traveling anywhere these days?

In the COVID era time itself seems to have changed, and it’s that broad, transforming effect caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, happening to us all, that we explore in a pair of new CJSM podcasts.

In the first episode of this ‘COVID themed’ series, we talk with two editors of CJSM — our Editor-in-Chief Christopher Hughes MBBS, Msc and Associate Editor Hamish Osborne MBChB, MMedSci.

Dr. Hughes lives and practices sports medicine in the United Kingdom, and Dr. Osborne does the same in New Zealand.  They both wear several ‘hats,’ ranging from the professional (head team physician, academic, clinician) to the personal (spouse and parent).  Both share their unique perspectives on how their lives, and their nations’ lives, have been transformed in these few months we have all been dealing with this novel virus.

I invite you to visit our podcasts on iTunes or at our journal website — this weekend, download and listen to these interviews with two physicians on opposite sides of the globe.  And keep your eyes posted for the next podcast, our 42nd, coming in rapid order. We’ll get a chance to ask other doctors in other parts of the globe about their lives.

Stay healthy!
