Not only has Dr. Pam been recently voted on to the board of directors of the American College of Sports Medicine, but she's also an avid senior Olympic triathlete and an advocate for getting & staying fit. So anyone else who speaks that language needs to be on the show!
Dr. Daniel Fulham O’Neill is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine doctor, and sports psychologist. At the intersection of physical health and sports, he has built over 30+ years of a successful medical practice and revolutionary education platform that is transforming today’s approach to children’s fitness. His research, presentations, and books have consistently challenged the status quo, inspiring educators nationwide to discover and nurture the athlete in every child.
He joins us today to talk about his newest book Survival of the Fit: How Physical Education Ensures Academic Achievement and a Healthy Life.
Listen as these two talk all things sports medicine, how obesity is affecting our kids (in more ways than you think), how letting kids be kids will ultimately lead to health and wellness, and keeping gym class fun & positive.
