What is the "SportsMed Web" ?

What's

?

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/scientific research and my experience treating patients. It is entirely non-profit, educational, and there are no commercial advertisements or relationships. 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.
