Medical care for mass gatherings represents an intersection of emergency medicine with public health and public safety requiring working talents in business, logistics, disaster preparedness, telecommunications, and public relations. The ingredients for success lie in understanding the health and medical care of populations through systems.

Each year over 200,000,000 people show their support for their favorite sports team by attending an event affiliated with the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, major league baseball, the National Hockey League, National Collegiate Athletic Association division I college football and basketball, or National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) (TabJe.6-1). Not included in these figures are the millions who attend high school athletics events, Olympic festivals, local and state fairs, music concerts, and religious, political, or professional gatherings.
