Awkward with ankles? Let this conversation around the role of #BigData in ankle injuries get you up to speed!

Not one of the 4000 that tuned in to our podcast on ankle injuries last week? We’d suggest squeezing it into your commute!

Dr Mackenzie Herzog (@MackenzieHerzog) has a PhD in Sports Injury and Orthopaedic Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is currently a Lead Epidemiologist on the Injury Surveillance and Analytics team at IQVIA. She was part of a team assessing the risks of sustaining an ankle sprain whilst playing in the NBA across four seasons. In this podcast we explore the findings from the paper, the need to collect robust data to inform injury prevention strategies, how data science and sports epidemiology is evolving and her insights on working with teams in the NBA and NFL.
