Bio: 
Jon has practiced as an athletic trainer at the secondary school setting for seven years. Currently, he is an outreach athletic trainer for OSF Orthopedics in Peoria, IL. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Eureka College, his Master of Athletic Training degree from the University of Arkansas, and he is a first-year graduate student in the Doctorate of Athletic Training program at Temple University. He has presented on sickle cell trait and exertional rhabdomyolysis at several symposiums at the local, state, and regional levels, including a NATA foundation sponsored presentation. He has one publication in the Journal of Strategies titled, Sickle cell and the student-athlete: Considerations at the secondary school setting.
Abstract: 
Exertional sickling is the top non-traumatic cause of death in Division I African American athletes, as well as being one of the top four non-traumatic causes of death for all athletes. The current knowledge gaps include a lack of genetic counseling for athletes with sickle cell trait and inconsistent implementation of tailored exercise precautions by sports medicine professionals. If adhered to, the knowledge of an athlete’s sickle cell trait status, proper education, and tailored exercise precautions can ensure safe athletic participation for individuals with sickle cell trait. The purpose of this webinar is to educate attendees on the history of exertional sickling and the current best practices to prevent exertional sickling crises and deaths.
