All Area Coaches Invited to Aug. 9 Event


All area coaches (representing schools, travel teams, and local leagues) are invited to attend an upcoming Coaches’ Cookout, sponsored by Horizon Health. The cookout will be held Thursday, August 9, at 6:30 pm, in the cafeteria at Paris High School, 14040 E. 1200th Road, Paris.

The event will feature two educational sessions: Ronald Wheeler, MD, orthopedic surgeon, presenting “Hot Topics in Sports Medicine” and Tony Nasser, MD, FACC, FSCAI, cardiologist, discussing “Heart Conditions in Athletes.”

Dr. Wheeler has an extensive background in sports medicine, having served as team physician for many high school and college teams, including Western Illinois University.

Dr. Nasser played football throughout high school and college. In 2002, he joined Indianapolis’ semi-professional team, where he participated in the Midwest Interstate Football League until 2007. During that time, his team won three consecutive championships (2005-2007).

Attendees will also enjoy a catered meal. They will meet the Horizon Health sports medicine team and athletic trainers for the 2018-2019 year, and learn about an opportunity for free heart scans. Each coach in attendance will receive a free gift.

RSVPs for the event are required by Wednesday, August 1. Contact Alli Antkiewicz at, or call 217-466-4244.
