Abstract

UNDHealth.org Launches New Video Series

UNDHealth.org has launched a new video format to inform the public about various health issues, and its first new video of 2011 is available on the website UNDHealth.org.

This new video focuses on a common sports injury: tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which is critical for knee stability. Whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, this video gives tips for preventing such an injury, plus how those injuries are diagnosed and patients rehabilitated.

The video uses UND's men's and women's hockey teams as examples that highlight the School of Medicine and Health Science's Sports Medicine Department. It was filmed shortly after the men's hockey team returned from the NCAA Frozen Four tournament.

Experts in this episode include Mark Poolman, assistant athletic trainer and men’s hockey strength coach at Ralph Engelstad Arena; Dr. Bill Mann from Altru Clinic-Family Medicine, medical director, athletic training degree program; and Steve Westereng, director of UND’s Department of Sports Medicine.

UNDHealth.org, formerly Medical School for the Public, aims to inform, educate and engage the people of North Dakota on health care issues. The video series is produced by the UND Marketing Group (UNDMG), with Dean Joshua Wynne, MD, MBA, MPH, serving as Executive Producer. The show is directed by Tim DeBolt, MBA, of UNDMG, and principal videography by Jordan Simon of UNDMG. The next video, to be launched in September, will address allergies. Skin cancer and melanoma will be covered in October, so check back often for updates. UNDHealth.org
