    Professor of Orthopedic Surgery and Chief of Sports Medicine, Loyola University Health Systems; Medical Director, Lewis University

    As Chief of Sports Medicine, I have learned to rely on Athletic Trainers as my first responders - my go-to people when treating an athlete. At Loyola, we truly value our relationship with Lewis University, and it's a relationship we want to foster and see grow in the future. I'm proud of helping our students develop in the classroom, and then see them develop their own strong reputation in the field. I couldn't find a better group of people to see and take care of than the people at Lewis University."
