“Philadelphia’s Love Run Half Marathon is a terrific local event and we are proud to take part, again,” says Alexis S. Tingan, MD, CAQSM, Penn Sports Medicine physician and Love Run Medical Team Director. “We expect this to be another great year and wish all of the runners luck. Our clinical team will be cheering everyone on from the tents and sidelines, and, of course, will be there to assist those in need of care.”
Penn Sports Medicine physicians will supervise medical staff at mobile medical tents along the race route and finish line. The Penn team will also provide training to the nurses, paramedics, EMTs and athletic training volunteers that are staffing the event on race day.
