Athletic Department Disputes Sports Illustrated Story on Nittany Lion Football Medical Care
Penn State University is disputing an article in Sports Illustrated coming out today, calling the magazine’s characterization of the football program’s medical care programs “erroneous.”“
Penn State assistant athletic director of communications Jeff Nelson says the university provided Sports Illustrated with facts and data that demonstrate their commitment to student-athletes and how it compares to other peer institutions.
Nelson claims the article insinuates lower standards.
Penn State recently made changes to its medical staff. After recommendations by head football coach Bill O’Brien, Dr. Peter Seidenberg, a primary care sports medicine physician for Penn State Hershey’s orthopedic practice in State College, was named team physician. In addition, Dr. Scott Lynch, associate professor of orthopedics and director of orthopedic sports medicine at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, was named the football program’s orthopedic consultant. Meanwhile, longtime team orthopedic surgeon and physician Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli was removed from those positions but remains as the director of athletic medicine at Penn State.
