UB Sports Medicine
WHO ARE WE?
We are UB Sports Medicine. We are the staff behind the scenes that keep the student-athletes healthy. When they have an injury or illness, we are the people that help them get back to competing. There is a great pride amongst our staff to give the student-athletes our energy and expertise for their benefit; their success is our success. Our staff includes 11 certified athletic trainers from all over the world, skilled physicians from UBMD and allied health professionals from the community. Even though our backgrounds are diverse, we share the goal of making sure our student-athletes receive the BEST care possible.
WHY ARE WE RAISING FUNDS?
In order to give our student-athletes the BEST opportunity for recovery and return to play, we want to maintain a top of the line facility with the tools that OPTIMIZE their recovery. We have two great sports medicine facilities, but need to make sure that there is enough equipment for ALL 500+ student-athletes to benefit. The money raised from our crowdfunding project will be utilized to add an arm bike (Upper Body Ergometer) and two new electrical modalities (Compexes) FOR THE STUDENT-ATHLETES. This new equipment can help return strength to a student-athlete’s arms and shoulders after an injury or even keep them conditioned while recovering from a leg injury that does not allow them to run. The electrical modalities will help them heal at an OPTIMAL level while traveling with the team in between competitions. These pieces are vital to maintaining the health of our student-athletes and make the most of their experience as an athlete at UB. Our goal as a sports medicine staff is to give the student-athlete the best chance to be their best, their entire tenure, including times that they have an injury.
WHY WE NEED YOU
Having the appropriate equipment for our sports medicine staff gives the student-athletes the BEST opportunity for success in competition. We strive to continue a Championship culture through our energy and efforts. By donating to our crowdfunding project, YOU are helping us continue to give the student-athlete the best experience possible in an elite athletics department. YOUR financial support will immediately IMPACT all student-athletes at UB directly. Thank you for your generosity!
