Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Official Medical Provider of UA Esports

New research opportunities, quicker medical care for varsity esports members and a new course were born from this partnership.

The Zips Gaming Lounge, located in the Williams Honors College, features 24 state-of-the-art gaming PCs and five consoles for recreational use by UA students in good academic standing.

Although video gaming may not have the same physical toll as professional football or basketball, the medical industry still wants to keep collegiate esports gamers healthy.

In a partnership with The University of Akron, Cleveland Clinic Sports Health is now the exclusive medical provider for Akron Esports.
