On July 18, 2009 Dr. Rae was invited to speak at the Arizona Competitive Youth Football League coaches meeting about dehydration and injury prevention. Dehydration is of particular concern here in Arizona, and many of the coaches had a lot of questions about how to best prevent their players from being effected. He also spoke about the best ways to prevent injuries. One of the techniques he talked about is a dynamic warm up rather than stretching before games and practices.
