Lindsay J. DiStefano, PhD, ATC
Assistant Professor, Kinesiology (Affiliate)
My research interests center around sport-related musculoskeletal injury prevention with a specific focus towards ACL injury prevention and injury prevention in a youth population. I am currently studying an injury prevention program in a military population, evaluating the development of risk factors for injury in children, and investigating new methods to translate injury prevention to the community. Past research experiences include studying the effects of injury prevention programs in youth athletes, evaluating the necessary components of injury prevention programs, and prospectively investigating risk factors for ACL injury.
