About the Study
This study, funded by the Pac-12 Student-Athlete Health & Well-Being Grant Program, aims to compare the student athlete to cohort-matched, non-student athlete alumni who graduated 2, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 year prior.
The athletes we will be looking at specifically are from the following NCAA sports:
- Women’s Soccer
The study will be utilizing surveys to measure physical and psychological health and well-being, including questions related to chronic conditions (e.g., diabetes, heart disease, obesity, neurodegenerative disease, etc…) and mental health diagnoses.
What Will We Learn?
- Health and life trajectories of CU alumni, and how they differ or align based on their student experience and characteristics (student-athlete or student non-athlete; demographics, sport played, gender etc.)
- Identify best practices (current and historical)
- Identify opportunities for change that could optimize health outcomes and life trajectories for all Buffs
