On September 28 during Homecoming weekend, the Athletic Training Program hosted a brunch celebrating 10 years of accreditation and 30 years of athletic training at Stony Brook University. Students, faculty and staff joined program alumni to celebrate by sharing stories and photos depicting the growth and success of the program to date.
At the event, Dr. Stuart Cherney, instrumental in forming the Athletic Training Program and supporting it from its inception, was honored for his dedication to the program during the past 30 years. As one of the first sports medicine specialists on Long Island, Dr. Cherney has cared for high school, college and professional athletes for more than 30 years and he has been the Stony Brook head team physician since 1983.
Athletic Training is a major offered through the School of Health Technology and Management. “The program thanks the University, alumni, faculty, staff and friends in supporting its endeavors past, present and future,” said Athletic Training Program Chair Kathryn A. Koshansky.
