Dr. Jason E. Bennett, Assistant Professor in the Program in Physical Therapy, traveled with the US Paralympic Shooting Team to Hannover, Germany from May 5th-15th, 2016 for the International Shooting Competition of Hannover (ISCH).  Dr. Bennett primarily provided medical services to the athletes competing for Team USA, but also assisted athletes from various other countries who were traveling without a medical provider.  
"I feel very fortunate to have been invited to serve as the medical provider for the US Paralympic Shooting Team competing in this prestigious event.  It was so enlightening to meet and work with medical providers from around the world, and to be involved with this amazing group of athletes.  It is definitely one of the highlights of my professional career," says Dr. Bennett.
Don't forget to cheer on Team USA at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games!
