San Diegans do not have to travel to the Olympics to see athletes from around the world compete in the sport they love. International scholar-athletes in their own backyard are scoring record three-pointers on the court and speeding past competitors on the track.
Catherine M. Robertson, MD, has been named chief of Sports Medicine at UC San Diego Health. Robertson, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in treating injuries of the shoulder, knee and hip, will further enhance UC San Diego Health’s reputation for customizing innovative, evidenced-based care for all athletes — from the weekend warrior to elite, professional and Olympic athletes.
Down for a little Triton 5K friendly competition? For several years running, “Team Race Condition” from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering has consistently taken the top spot as the team with the largest number of registered members—including last year’s come-from-behind win, beating out teams from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the School of Global Policy and Strategy.
On April 9, more than 4,000 members of the UC San Diego community will gather on campus to support student scholarships at the 21st annual Triton 5K & Festival. Participation in this annual event contributes to the Campaign for UC San Diego. Since 1996, the 5K has raised more than $3.6 million in scholarships and benefited more than 1,000 motivated and talented students. This year’s charge is to help support the next 1,000.
