injury prevention techniques are taught at four brevard county high schools
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Since 2010, Parrish Medical Group’s Sports Medicine and Athletic Training Program led by physician Anthony Allotta, has hosted a series of sports physicals for area students and has donated 100% of the proceeds back to support students attending North Brevard schools.
This year, Dr. Allotta was joined by PMG’s Orthopedic Surgeon Bryan Parry, MD, certified athletic trainers, and representatives from Who We Play For. Nearly 200 physicals were completed and, of those, 100 participants opted to receive a potentially life-saving electrocardiogram (ECG).
“Parrish Healthcare is a proud sponsor of Who We Play For since 2019.”
“Together, we have served to eliminate preventable sudden cardiac death in youth by making available affordable heart screenings at our annual events,” said PMC Sports Medicine Physician Anthony Allotta.
Parrish Medical Group’s Dr. Allotta, Athletic Trainers, and soon to be joined by Dr. Parry, work with local student-athletes before, during, and after the school year.
They are on the fields for practices and game time to provide medical support and to teach injury prevention techniques at four area high schools:
■ Titusville High School
■ Space Coast Jr/Sr High School
■ Astronaut High School
■ Cocoa High School
If an injury occurs, the same team that is there for them on the fields is there through their treatment and recovery.
“Working with local student-athletes by performing our annual sports physicals as well as providing athletic training and medical support during sports seasons is a terrific way that care partners at Parrish Medical Group can give back to our community and support our mission of healing experiences for everyone all the time,” said Dr. Allotta.
