Logan University leadership took another step toward ensuring safety and compliance among all members of the Logan community.
Last month, the Logan Paralympic Operations Department and the Logan Diversity & Compliance Department attended the second annual United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and US Center of SafeSport Summit. This event brings together all of the National Governing Bodies and High Performance Management Organizations in the USOPC organization for the purpose of ensuring athlete safety and compliance in the Olympic and Paralympic movement.
“Athlete safety, just like the safety of its students and patients, is of the upmost importance to Logan,” said Kelley Humphries, DC, MS, EMT-P, CSCS, ICCSP, CCS, executive director of Paralympic Operations at Logan University. “Attending this event provides an opportunity to gain additional tools and insight into ensuring all of the members of Logan’s community (faculty, staff, student, patient, athlete and coach) can safely be a part of the Olympic and Paralympic movement.”
Joining Dr. Humphries was Logan’s Chief of Compliance and Engagement Herbert Caldwell, who said attending the summit magnified the unique opportunity Logan has to be innovative and forward thinking.
“Our continued commitment to growth with the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee will not only benefit the sport and athletes, but also expand the clinical experience and diversify the academic enterprise for our students and faculty,” he said. “It is exciting that as the movement develops, Logan University will be centered on the international stage as the only higher education institution serving as a High Performance Management Organization.”
