I have been a volunteer with USA BOXING for the past 10 years, working as a ringside physician. Presently I am the Chair of the USA Boxing medical committee . Responsibilities include placing physicians at national and international events, and organizing educational symposium for our members.
USA Boxing is the amateur organization for young athletes aspiring for Olympic competition and later entering a professional
boxing career. There is a legal requirement to have doctors present at these competitions for the safety of our boxers. I have been attending local , state, and national events for the Golden Gloves, Police Athletic League, and the US National Olympic team. In prior years, I attended numerous Olympic Qualifier events , as well as the Men's and Women's Olympic Trials. I have traveled to international tournaments in Honduras and Germany as the team physician of our national team. I am pleased to provide free care to assist these male and female athletes in their quest for Olympic recognition.
I enjoy reading , viewing and talking science fiction and cruising. Give me a good espionage story and movie and
its a good day.
Education is very important to me. One child has a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, one is a Medical student, one is an RN in the operating room, and one is a Biomedical engineering student. The goals of learning and striving for achievement are important tenants in my children's scholastic adventure.
