The Heart of Athletes Study’s purpose it to evaluate the presence of heart injury in athletes who have tested positive for COVID-19. The research will standardize cardiovascular evaluations of NCAA athletes to understand long-term implications from COVID-19. This will also create a platform for Athlete’s Hearts Imaging – for sudden cardiac death and other conditions. The Joel Cornette Foundation pledged an initial grant of $250,000 to support the study and committed resources to raise awareness and financial support.
