Palmer graduate leads U.S. medical team at Sochi Olympics
William Moreau, D.C., DACBSP, has cared for athletes most of his career. Today he’s the Managing Director of Sports Medicine for the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Dr. Moreau, a 1981 graduate of Palmer’s Davenport, Iowa, campus, directs the multiple disciplinary clinics that service about 20,000 athlete visits annually, oversees the medical care and medical team selections at the Games, and develops a nationwide network of health care providers to support Team USA athletes. He also serves as Medical Director for the Olympic Games.
“The athletes who comprise Team USA are the hardest-working, hardest-training and most amazing people I’ve ever treated,” he says. “The athletes we see are akin to BMW racing machines; their joints and muscles are so finely tuned that small differences make notable changes.”
Dr. Moreau was on site for the Sochi Games, overseeing a medical team of 28 physicians – six of whom are doctors of chiropractic.
Dr. Moreau was a keynote speaker at the Palmer San Jose Homecoming May 2–4, 2014, when he addressed chiropractic care in Olympic sports medicine.
