What is the "SportsMed Web" ? The SportsMed Web was designed specifically with the endurance athlete in mind, but there is material here that will appeal to all athletes. In developing this site I have pooled together published medical literature and scientific research, Internet questions and answers, and my experience treating patients. It is entirely non-profit and there are no commercial advertisements. It is supported by the computing resources at Rice University and the contributions of Mark A. Jenkins, MD -- who functions as director, webmaster, and author -- and Caryn Honig, RD (nutritional consultant and contributing author).
