Korey Stringer Institute To Open On UConn Campus
The University of Connecticut's Neag School of Education, with the support of the National Football League and Gatorade, is opening the Korey Stringer Institute on its Storrs, Conn. campus to further research, education and advocacy for the prevention of heat stroke and sudden death in sport. The institute is named in honor of Minnesota Vikings All-Pro lineman Korey Stringer, whose death in 2001 from complications due to heat stroke during a pre-season training camp brought national attention to the dangers of heat stroke among athletes. A formal announcement of the creation of the Korey Stringer Institute took place Friday, April 23rd at the start of Day Two of the 2010 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
