Medscape hosts an expert panel featuring John P. DiFiori, MD, FASCM, chief of the Primary Sports Medicine Service at HSS, and HSS sports medicine physicians Kathryn D. McElheny, MD and James J. Kinderknecht, MD, discussing the current state of medical care for professional athletes in the era of COVID-19, given their experience in Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the National Football League (NFL).
