Sports Medicine Physician Recognized by Licensed Athletic Trainers
The Wisconsin Athletic Trainers’ Association recently recognized ThedaCare Sports Medicine Physician Doug Connor, MD, with an honorary membership.
Dr. Connor is the first person since 2014 to receive honorary membership in the organization, a professional membership association for licensed athletic trainers (LATs) and others who support the athletic training profession in Wisconsin. ThedaCare partners with area schools to provide LATs who provide care to student athletes.
Dr. Connor oversees about 25 LATs throughout the area, said Anna Linstedt, a licensed athletic trainer with ThedaCare Orthopedic Care who serves students at Menasha High School.
“Doug really seems to go above and beyond to help our LATs in any way possible, make the extra phone call to parents, take the phone call at all times from our LATs, fit a kid into his schedule, come out to our schools to meet with an athlete and their parents, and just about anything else we ask him to do for us,” she said.
