This is A-State Connections.  I'm Johnathan Reaves.   Arkansas State University is participating in eSports in the fall.  I conducted an interview with Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine and Athletic Trainer Dr. Bhavesh Joshi at the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University.  He says there is some research that is taking place about some of the risks that are associated with competitive gaming.  First, he tells about a competitive eSports team that NYIT in New York has, as well as his position on the Arkansas State committee to bring eSports to A-State.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.  

Johnathan Reaves is the News Director for KASU Public Radio. As part of an Air Force Family, he moved to Arkansas from Minot, North Dakota in 1986. He was first bitten by the radio bug after he graduated from Gosnell High School in 1992. While working on his undergraduate degree, he worked at KOSE, a small 1,000 watt AM commercial station in Osceola, Arkansas. Upon graduation from Arkansas State University in 1996 with a degree in Radio-Television Broadcast News, he decided that he wanted to stay in radio news. He moved to Stuttgart, Arkansas and worked for East Arkansas Broadcasters as news director and was there for 16 years.
