One of the most recognizable faces at NAU sporting events is that of Dr. George Hershey, who has been involved with the School's sports medicine program since 1975. Dr. Hershey has provided care for all Northern Arizona University squads during his two-decade plus involvement with the program. In addition to providing care for Northern Arizona athletes and instruction for the athletic trainers during their schooling, Dr. Hershey has been sought out by teams sporting the stars and stripes of our country's teams. Dr. Hershey has been actively involved with the United States Olympic Committee, and served as head team physician for the USA's entry in the 1995 Pan American Games.
