Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We are honored to announce a forthcoming Special Issue that will focus on the prevention, recognition, and treatment of exertional heat illnesses. Our approach will offer a contemporary look at best practices, emerging technologies, the translational potential of research findings, and real-world challenges being faced by youth athletes all the way through the upcoming heat issues of the 2020 IOC Tokyo Olympics/2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup and recent learnings from the 2019 Track and Field World Championships.
