How Michigan is Bringing Mental Health Care to Student Athletes
The Huffington Post
Will Heininger, a sport management major at the University of Michigan, was living what was supposed to be a dream. He was playing football for the University of Michigan, a school that shapes the entire character of Ann Arbor, the city where Heininger grew up.

The Telegraph
Someday, the medical and athletic training communities may figure out a way to prevent ACL injuries.
