ACSM Expert Consensus Statement on Extertional Heat Illness

Korey Stringer

In August 2001, Korey Stringer, a Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman, passed away from exertional heat stroke. During Korey's five-year tenure in the NFL he earned pro-bowl honors. Since the time of Korey's death, his wife, Kelci, worked tirelessly to develop an exertional heat stroke prevention institute to honor her husband's legacy. To that end, she joined forces with exertional heat stroke expert Douglas Casa, Ph.D, ATC, at the University of Connecticut to make this dream a reality and the institute came to fruition in April 2010.

The mission of the Korey Stringer Institute is to provide research, education, advocacy and consultation to maximize performance, optimize safety and prevent sudden death for the athlete, warfighter and laborer.

KSI is partnered with the National Football League (NFL), Gatorade, National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), Mission, Camelbak, Kestrel, Defib Tech, and First Line Technology  to further advance its efforts and goals.
