Tamara Valovich McLeod, PhD, ATC, FNATA, associate professor, Athletic Training program, has been invited to serve as a section editor for the Journal of Athletic Training (JAT).  JAT is the flagship journal for the athletic training profession and one of the most respected journals in sports medicine.

Dr. McLeod is one of only 13 section editors. Section editors are assigned to broad topical areas, and Dr. McLeod will serve in the “Examination, Treatment, and Rehabilitation” section.  As section editor, her responsibility will be to coordinate peer review for submitted articles relevant to her section and make final recommendations to the editor-in-chief about the acceptability of an article for publication.

“She replaces Dr. Kevin Guskiewicz of the University of North Carolina, who just last fall received a MacArthur Genius Award,” said John T. Parsons, PhD, ATC, AT, associate professor and director, Athletic Training program.”  Obviously, this is a prestigious appointment reserved for those scholars with excellent national and international reputations in research.”

Dr. Gary Cloud

Gary Cloud, PhD, MBA, ATSU-SOMA faculty, is the recipient of the 2012 Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association (AOMA) Distinguished Service Award.  Dr. Cloud was presented with the award at the AOMA annual Presidential Reception, Gala, and Awards program held on April 20.

“I accept this award on behalf of the Community Health Center healers, especially the many osteopathic physicians whose talents are dedicated to improving the health status of vulnerable populations and underserved communities,” said Dr. Cloud.


Congratulations to Thomas McWilliams, DO, FACOFP, interim dean, ATSU-SOMA, on being named as the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association (AOMA) 2012-13 president.  Dr. McWilliams was installed as president at the AOMA House of Delegates meeting held on April 19.

“During the next year it is my hope to focus attention on the important role that osteopathic physicians play in meeting the healthcare needs of Arizona’s citizens, particularly in the primary care specialties,” said Dr. McWilliams. Our schools are very cost-effective in providing an appropriate specialty mix of well-trained physicians. I intend to do everything possible to expand the availability of graduate medical education (residency training) in order to keep these physicians in Arizona.”
