In this edition of MSU Today on News/Talk 760 WJR, Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon and Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis talk with Bill Strampel and Dan Gould.

Strampel is the dean of MSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, which has always believed in community-immersed education.

“We train with 41 different hospital partners around the state,” says Strampel. “We’re spread out, and we train great students across Michigan.”

Simon, Hollis and Strampel also talk about the difference in philosophies between M.D.’s and D.O.’s. and discuss the Affordable Care Act.

Gould leads MSU’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports.

He tells Simon and Hollis that ISYS has been around for almost 30 years and was started by the Michigan Legislature because of concerns about issues in youth sports.

Dan and his team try to help parents be “optimally involved” in their children’s athletic endeavors. Gould says their research shows that 7 out of 10 parents “are pretty good, so we seek to help the other 3 get along better.”

The wide-ranging conversation also touches on management of injuries, concussions, performance-enhancing drugs, and the importance of instilling moral standards in our youth.
