Everyone has made tremendous sacrifices this year and we understand that it has not been easy. Our hearts go out to all the heroes who are making a difference for those affected by COVID-19. Right now, more than ever before, it is important to stick together and support each other through these trying times. We know there is a lot on everyone’s plate; however, the Hughston Foundation is continuing to carry out our mission of protecting the athletes in our community. As our high school students participate in sports, we want to make sure that Hughston is there to provide medical coverage before, during, and after the games, along with having lifesaving concussion software in place for pre- and post-testing.
For more information about our Education, Research and Training, please visit our website at: www.hughston.com.
To continue our campaign of protecting high school athletes we need financial support. As the official sports medicine provider for the Muscogee County School District and other county sports programs in the Chattahoochee Valley, we station trained professionals on the sidelines who respond immediately when an injury occurs. Our sideline coverage means that help is always only a few feet away. Our program also focuses on injury prevention through preparticipation screenings, wrestling assessments, concussion testing software, and educating the athletes and their coaches.
Help us continue to provide immediate, quality care and support when a student athlete is injured.
Sideline Medical Coverage – At The Hughston Foundation we have established safety protocols and procedures to reduce the chance of injury during practices and sporting competitions. If an injury does occur, our athletic trainers and sports medicine physicians are there to provide immediate care. Our community has approximately 5,000 high school and middle school athletes. During the 2017-2018 school year, our athletic training program treated approximately 2,500 injuries. These documented injuries included not only bloody noses and pulled muscles, but also more severe injuries, such as concussions, fractures, asthma attacks, and wounds requiring stitches. Some athletes required follow-up with a physician and rehabilitation to recover fully. Most often, treatment was rendered on the sidelines during practice and sporting events at no cost to the athlete or his or her parents or guardian. Our athletic trainers are on hand to educate athletes and their families or guardians about caring for the injury or illness and to assist in rehabilitation.
We greatly appreciate any financial assistance you can offer, as there is no donation too small to make an impact on the future of our children. Help us continue to provide immediate, quality care and support when a student athlete is injured.
