USMST Partners with UN Women in Houston for Amazing Outreach Event

On Friday, April 29, 2016, the US Medical Soccer Team partnered with the US National Committee for UN Women – Houston for a day of youth outreach.  We took our program, “Healthy, Fit and Smart” to Hartman Middle School and Jones Futures Academy in Houston, Texas for two outstanding events as part of the UN Women’s Global Health Summit.  Both programs were a huge success, with over 500 kids participating.  Many thanks go to the staff and faculty at both schools, with Dr Kedrick Little (Hartman) and Ms Vickie Jones (Jones) deserving specific accolades for putting together a great day for the kids.  The entire program would not have been possible without the support and organization of Dr Rena Menard, Dave Cameron and the USNC-UN Women.  Finally, special thanks go to Nicole from Terumo, Kathryn and Aaron from Sonosite, and Andrew from Stryker Corporation for taking time out of their busy schedules to join us on this special day!
