Significant Accomplishments

Research Team Earns Neuromuscular Training Awards

Greg Myer, PhD, Sports Medicine Research Director, continues to lead a team of successful researchers in neuromuscular training. His team won the 2013 American Journal of Sports Medicine Systematic Review Award and the 2013 Clint Thompson Recognition for Clinical Advancement award in the Journal of Athletic Training. Myer also collaborated with Eric Wall in Orthopedics to win the 2012 AOSSM Innovative Outcomes Assessment Grant for “Optimization and External Validation of Non-invasive Outcome Prediction Algorithm for Knee Osteochondritis Dissecans in Children.”

Expanding Staff and Programs

Adam Kiefer, PhD, a researcher in virtual reality and postural coordination, joined us this year. We also added clinical faculty Kate Berz, DO, Greg Walker, MD, and new Division Director Kelsey Logan, MD, MPH, all of whom share research interests in concussion. Over the past year, a new Sports Medicine Outreach Program has been funded and staffed to provide training coverage and services to local high schools, clubs, organizations and local tournaments.
