October Meeting - "When the Unthinkable Happens"

John Davis, FTC board member

R. David Anderson, M.D.

Meredith Defranco, D.P.T.


It was a rave run – Seattle in July, with Mount Rainier in full view.  John was topping off the perfect vacation with an easy 6 miler.  His eighth (most recent and fastest) marathon had him considering a return to Boston in 2016.


Then the unthinkable happened.  His rave run was interrupted by a heart attack.  He now has a stent that protects him, as he runs in and around Gainesville.


Come hear Dr. Anderson explain how interventional cardiology saves lives.  Hear Dr. Defranco explain how to design cardiac rehabilitation programs for runners.  John will bring some reminders of his unexpectedly extended vacation.


Meeting location is on the third floor of the UF Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute adjacent to the Hilton University Of Florida Conference Center Hotel on SW 34th Street. 


The address of the building is:

3450 Hull Road

Gainesville, FL 32607

The Florida Track Club is a member of the Road Runners Club Of America and the USA Track and Field Florida Association.
