An Olympic feat

In February 2018, SIU Medicine had a representative at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Dae Hyoun (David) Jeong, MD, director of sports medicine and geriatric musculoskeletal medicine at SIU Center for Family and Community Medicine in Springfield, achieved a monumental personal goal: He served as an Olympic physician.

Like the athletes, Dr. Jeong had put in years of preparation and training to participate in the Olympic Games, which were hosted in his home country. Dr. Jeong’s qualifications led to him being entrusted with an even greater responsibility: serving as Venue Medical Officer at the Olympic Sliding Center, home of the luge, skeleton and bobsled events. He would direct the venue’s medical team and provide world-class care for Olympians from around the globe.
