Seattle Marathon 2015


Seattle Marathon

It is that exciting time of the year again for the opportunity to help runners from our community at the Seattle Marathon.  This event is happening on Sunday, November 29, 2015. 

It has been a tradition for the Bastyr Sport Medicine Club to provide assistance and treatment to athletes before and/or after their run. You will not only gain clinical experience, but also see patients at a fast-paced and acute setting.  The benefits also including receiving preceptorship hours from our BSMC supervisors, Dr. Masahiro Takakura, ND, DC, LAc and Dr. Calvin Kwan, ND, CKTI. Furthermore, ND Primaries if you are interested in receiving shift hours, please email for more information.

Also we are welcoming those that were unable to make it to the meetings. This is a great opportunity to come practice your physical medicine skills, learn about athlete management, and participate in the community. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
