The Monday Memo
November 11, 2013 PITT DPT STUDENTS
This past week, NBC News posted an article on their website outlining The Eagle Fund, an effort set up by The Andrews Institute, run by orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, and Athlete’s Performance, a training and rehabilitation center focusing on functional return to sport for high-level athletes. The initiative looks to place wounded warriors alongside rehabilitating professional athletes, extending the world-class continuum of care provided to these linebackers and home-run hitters to our midshipmen and front-line soldiers.
The soldier is the prime example of what it means to do more in the face of adversity. Those who have served have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom and well being, and without question The Eagle Fund is an outstanding example of giving back to our wounded veterans.
On Veteran’s Day, we commemorate those men and women who have served in various facets of the United Stated Military. We can use our soldiers as an inspiration and motivation to always do more. Doing more in our academics. Doing more in our promotion of health and well-being. Doing the most to help our patients to pain-free living, just as our soldiers do the most to keep us living in freedom.
Find out more information about The Eagle Fund, and what you can do to help these veterans receive world-class care.
