CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Dr. David Phillips, M.D. will be the featured speaker at the Carbondale Civic Center on September 14 at 7 p.m.
Phillips is the Chief Medical advisor for the Athletic Training Services LLC in Atlanta, Ga. His presentation will focus on athletes and how oxidative stress affects their performance.
He has practiced as a board-certified emergency physician for nine years before shifting his focus to sports medicine. He was also an All-American swimmer at Harvard, two-time USA Triathlon All-American and qualified as a member of the Team USA for the 2008 ITU World Ironman Triathlon Championships.
“I can’t stress enough the critical role that the thousands of phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables play in helping protect our bodies – not only as a part of a normal metabolism, but especially during exercise," said Phillips.
The presentation is open to everyone.
