Dr. Andrew Gregory on Heat and Sports Safety for Children
Anna speaks with Dr. Andrew Gregory about heat and sports safety for children in these remaining summer months. Dr. Gregory will discuss signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, as well as steps you can take to be prepared to prevent or act if a child over heats. Dr. Gregory will also discuss how children that play sports don't need to be spending their summer in air conditioning. They need to acclimate their bodies to the heat by being outside and playing at least two weeks before their practices begin.
