Houston Methodist Partnership
The Houston Methodist Concussion Center's Telemedicine and Virtual Care Programs are led by national concussion expert Dr. Ken Podell and funded by the Texans and General Electric, this program enables Houston Methodist specialists to evaluate and diagnose patients virtually through a secure portal alongside an on-site trainer.
With this funding, the Houston Methodist team spreads awareness and information on diagnosis and treatment of concussions to certified athletic trainers, school administrators, coaches, teachers, and parents throughout Houston and the country via educational events, videos, and lectures.
The Sports Medicine Fellowship program was renamed the Houston Texans Scholars program in recognition of the support received from the Texans. The annual donation from the Texans allows three fellows per year at Houston Methodist to get an extra year of training in sports medicine. The program provides access for the fellows to attend national conferences, practice in cadaver labs, conduct research, and have hands-on experience on Texans gamedays.
The Texans fund regionalized student physical events for high school student-athletes in districts across Houston, providing more than 1,900 student-athletes with the physicals they need to compete in sports this year.
This program enables Houston Methodist to send certified athletic trainers to cover more sporting events in rural districts. The annual $25,000 grant from the Texans and the NFL Foundation provides life-saving emergency equipment to the trainers serving these rural communities and offsets expenses for the program.
