take care of young athletes, their mental health

Allyson Weldon is a sports psychologist at Akron Children's Hospital.

Today I’m excited to bring back a feature from before the COVID-19 pandemic called Healthy stocks.

In the monthly series, which began in 2018, I select topics of general interest to educate readers who would otherwise not have access to our area health experts.

The series continued into 2019 and a bit of 2020 before the pandemic took over my time.

New this time we will usually have a Now you know Akron podcast available to listen to the interview. Also look for occasional videos accompanying the columns on BeaconJournal.com.

Today’s topic is youth and sports with Akron Children’s Hospital’s new sports psychologist, Allyson Weldon. Weldon grew up in Parma and played football in high school and Ursuline College. She then earned her doctorate at the University of Houston and returned to northeast Ohio for her internship and work.
