sudden cardiac death
As director of emergency sports medicine at Mass General, an appointment that begins Jan. 1, Dr. Gian Corrado will help care for a wide variety of athletes at all levels, including the professionals of the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, and New England Revolution. As Corrado maintains his role with Northeastern, he will be inviting Huskies student-athletes to join him at Mass General to improve their performance as well as to recover from injuries.
As March Madness captures the imagination of sports fans across the country, it also serves as a stark reminder of a frightening trend. On average, every three days a competitive athlete in the U.S. succumbs to sudden cardiac death. Gianmichel Corrado, head team physician at Northeastern, is on a mission to change that.
