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.

Update 8/05/2016: Dr. Moreau continues to oversee all U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) sports-medicine clinics, Olympic and Paralympic Games planning and staffing, and the USOC National Medical Network. He’ll also be the first doctor of chiropractic to serve as a chief medical officer for an Olympic team at the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Learn more about Dr. Moreau’s work with the USOC in the Palmer Insights Spring/Summer 2016 issue.
