For the past 10 years, the West Campus Sports Council has served as the primary sports care provider at the Sea Otter Classic, a four-day annual event that brings nearly 10,000 world-class competitors to Monterey, Calif., for what is regarded as the world’s premier cycling festival.

During the decade of Sports Council care at the Sea Otter, West Campus faculty member and Sports Council clinician Mehdi Moossavi, D.C., CCSP (West ’92), has participated as a clinician each day at every event. Dr. Moossavi was recently honored for his “decade of dedication,” and was presented with a plaque in recognition of his “exemplary dedication to excellence.”

“I was honored to receive the award,” says Dr. Moossavi, who has served as a Sports Council clinician at many events since his 1993 appointment to the West Campus faculty. “I take enormous pride in serving as one of the most active Sports Council clinicians. Although we had great enthusiasm and confidence in the beginning (1994), I could not have imagined the Sports Council becoming the preeminent student sports chiropractic program. Credit goes to the students, to Dr. Ed Feinberg (Sports Council faculty advisor), Dr. Tom Souza (dean of Academic Affairs/past Sports Council co-advisor) and Dr. Greg Snow (dean of Clinics), and the College administration.”

Providing care at an event the size of the Sea Otter requires a Sports Council team that averages three to five clinicians and approximately 50 students. In addition to the competitors, many of the nearly 50,000 spectators also visit the Sports Council tent during the course of the event for chiropractic care and minor first-aid.
