Student athletes face unique challenges to their academic, social-emotional and physical health. This session presents a comprehensive health and wellness program that focuses on the needs of student athletes and the role of coaches, parents, and mentors in promoting wellness and academic success. We also examine how concept-mapping methodology was used to engage a variety of stakeholders including coaches, student, and current and former college and professional athletes to determine both content and approach.
