“We are thrilled to present this webinar to a global audience on a topic that is affecting people around the world,” said Michael Veley, director and chair of Syracuse University’s Department of Sport Management. “Dr. Larsen and Dr. Kmush are respected epidemiologists who will shed light on our current situation regarding the pandemic and what those of us in the sport industry can expect as we wrap up 2020 and head into 2021. And with Mike Tirico as the moderator, this is an event you don’t want to miss.”
