A star running back limps off the field after a big hit – and millions of fantasy football fans scour the internet for updates on the injury. A 12-year-old Little Leaguer begs his coach to teach him to throw a curveball – and the parents want answers when the coach refuses. A middle-aged jogger feels a sharp pain in her heel – and she searches for answers on WebMD.

Welcome to sports in the information age. Over 44 million children and adolescents play sports in the United States today. 125 million adults exercise regularly. And almost 200 million Americans are self-professed sports fans. All of them want information, and they want it in a form that is fast, accurate, understandable, and entertaining.

I serve on the Medical Aspects of Sports committee for the South Carolina Medical Association. I have previously served as the Chairman of the Public Relations committee for AOSSM.

I have tremendous experience with elite athletes. I served as Chief Tournament Physician for the Family Circle Cup women’s professional tennis tournament for seven years.
