The program is initially focused on Dartmouth’s varsity student-athletes, but eventually the program is expected to expand to include club sport and recreational athletes. Drew will fill us in on the progress of DP2, and we’ll hear about the magical powers of chocolate milk. To learn more about DP2, visit http://www.dartmouthsports.com/.
