There's a doctor in the house at the AWG
From taped ankles to concussion checks... one of the most important athlete services during the Arctic Winter games is medical assessment and treatment for two thousand athletes.
That includes treating injuries and illnesses, and making sure our young athletes don't return too soon to competition. It's no small task.
The hub is the polyclinic at Yukon College, with health professionals spread out over the competition venues. Dr. Brad Avery is chief medical officer for the games.
