Five Borough Bicycle Club Monthly Meeting – Dr. Brian C. Halpern

5BBC's speaker this evening is Brian C. Halpern, MD, a physician affiliated with the Sports Medicine Service of New York's renowned Hospital for Special Surgery. Dr. Halpern is a graduate of Weill Medical College of Cornell University and is on the faculty of that institution. He has also served as associate team physician to the Mets. Dr. Halpern is board certified in primary care sports medicine and family medicine and has published articles in professional journals and sports magazines.

In 1998, Dr. Halpern was tour physician for a 16-day, 1,100-mile bicycling expedition through Vietnam with disabled veterans of that war. Other participants included Senator John Kerry and Greg LeMond. This evening, it will be our privilege to see "Vietnam, Long Time Coming", the Emmy Award-winning film based on that journey.

Dr. Halpern will be available to entertain any questions you may have with respect to sports medicine and cycling – injury prevention, musculoskeletal issues, nutrition, hydration, respiration, etc.

This program has it all: cycling, sports medicine, community service, inspiration, and an award-winning film (with celebrities). You don't want to miss out on this evening!

The 5BBC wishes to thank the Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. Halpern, and Denise Magoolahan (Dr. Halpern's Office Manager) for their efforts and assistance.
