Vail Valley: Steadman Clinic Doctor joins injury-prevention group
Vail, CO, Colorado
Dr. Peter J. Millett, a doctor at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, has been elected to serve on the National Steering Committee for the Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention (STOP).
Millett joins a group of doctors from around the country who research, create awareness for, and encourage the prevention of the sport injuries, a growing epidemic among local and national youth.
“Far too often I find myself treating teenagers, adolescents, and even young children who have sustained sports injuries, and I am dedicated to finding solutions that will best safeguard our youth,” said Millett. “I look forward to my new role on the steering committee and working with some the world’s finest doctors as we focus on eradicating this problem.”
Millett has been outspoken about the need to confront the growing tide of youth sports injuries. He was recently interviewed on the topic by the Wall Street Journal in a story titled, “Red Flag on Kids, Sports, and Injuries.”
