Please vote and help Medicine of Cycling get a grant. My friend Dr. Claudette Lajam is the most selfless person I know. She is always helping out cyclists who are crashing or have injuries, all on her own time. Just this past Sunday I saw her hop on a folding bike during the Harlem crit to get to a rider who wen't down in a nasty crash.

Help Medicine of Cycling Get a Grant

The Medicine of Cycling is the only organization of its kind.  It began as a grass roots group of doctors who wanted to improve the medical care of cyclists.   I have been fortunate to be involved with this group, which was founded in 2010 and has educated hundreds of physicians across the country about taking care of our favorite people.  This group inspired me to hold the free cycling medical symposium at NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases last year, and the Medical Education course this year. There is more to come, too!

We are working to improve and expand our reach.  We have applied for a Chase Mission: Small Business grant in order to help build applications to make cycling and racing safer. We need 250 votes to be considered with a deadline of 6/30/12.  Please help by casting your FREE vote through your Facebook account.

Go to the "support" tab, find "California" on the drop down menu, and search for "Medicine." You can then scroll down and vote for us.  You can vote for as many different organizations as you like, but please include us.
