Dr. James Moriarity Joins Axon Sports as a Sports Medicine Consultant

8/9/2010

On Saturdays during the fall sports season there’s no place Dr. Moriarity, Head Team Physician at the University of Notre Dame, would rather be than at the football stadium. He joins the athletes on the sidelines.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of James Moriarity, M.D., to the role of Sports Medicine Consultant for Axon Sports.

Dr. Moriarty, head team physician at the University of Notre Dame, has more than 10 years of experience in the clinical application of Athlete concussion testing and computerized cognitive tests -- a tenure matched by very few  in American sports.  He has cared for more than 6,000 athletes during his time at Notre Dame. In addition to his current position, Dr. Moriarity is past president of the American Medical Society of Sports Medicine and a Fellow in the American College of Sports Medicine.  He is an alumnus of the University of Notre Dame, a graduate of the University of Southern California Medical School, and board certified in family medicine with a certificate of added qualification in Sports Medicine.

“Concussions are a serious issue in sport,” commented Dr. Moriarity. “What I find compelling about this opportunity is Axon Sports’ collaborative approach to engage athletes, parents, doctors, coaches, and athletic trainers in proactive education and concussion management. Parents, especially, are empowered to participate in ways that help support their children’s healthy competitive spirit, and help keep them safe in their pursuits.”
