Prevea Sports Medicine, a partner with Phoenix Athletics, is inviting UW-Green Bay students to attend the seminar “Careers in Sports Medicine” next Wednesday (April 29) from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Kress Events Center’s Special Events Room. Students will have the chance to speak with sports medicine experts to learn about various career opportunities, a typical day including pros and cons, and recommended education. To register.
Dr. James and Patricia Hinckley received an extended ovation at UW-Green Bay’s May 2012 commencement when they were recognized with the institution’s highest community honor, the Chancellor’s Award. Jim is a member of the UW-Green Bay Athletics Hall of Fame, and the training and sports medicine area at the Kress is named the James Hinckley Sports Medicine Center in his honor. In 2008 the Hinckleys endowed a UW-Green Bay scholarship fund — one of the University’s largest — in Patricia’s name, with preference to women student athletes pursuing careers related to mathematics, science or education. The couple’s philanthropy on behalf of the University began in 1981 with generous annual contributions to the Founders Association for student scholarships and academic enhancements. They later became active supporters of the Phoenix Fund for athletics, and the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. For a photo and our original news post from May 2012.
