This weekend, our host Dr. Marianne Ritchie will be joined by Christine Marschilok, MD, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Family Medicine & Sports Medicine, the Program Director of the Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship, and the Assistant Program Director of the Family Medicine Residency for the Department of Family and Community Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University.

Listen as the doctors discuss the role of the primary care Sports Medicine Physician and the importance of the Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation to maximize safe participation in school sports and identify risks for life-threatening conditions like cardiac arrest.

Your Real Champion: Simon’s Heart

Your Real Champion of the week are Phyllis and Darren Sudman.

Phyllis and Daren were the loving parents of two-year-old Sally and two-month-old Simon. One day Phyllis put baby Simon in for a nap, but then experienced the unthinkable…he never woke up. Testing revealed the cause was the long QT syndrome, a condition that causes an abnormal heart rhythm and can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. Simon’s Heart is the foundation that keeps Simon’s memory alive and aims to prevent the loss of other children from a detectable and treatable condition.

Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community. Know someone who should be featured? Nominate them now!
