Pediatric Sports Medicine – An Origin Story with Dr. Greg Landry



In order to better understand someone and how they came to be the person that they are, an origin story so to speak, sort of like how a hero or villain in comic books are revealed to readers, can help make things more clear and hopefully make the topic or character more interesting. My origin story may or may not be of great interest to our listeners, but it does involve our first guest to the podcast.

Join me, Dr. Mark Halstead, as I speak with Dr. Greg Landry, a man who not only helped me become the physician I am today, but was also someone who helped blaze the trail for pediatric sports medicine. Come learn the “secret origins” of my early years in med school, the humble beginnings of our profession and what we think about the state of health for young athletes today during this episode of the Pediatric Sports Medicine Podcast.

Dr. Greg Landry - One of the Many Guests on The Pediatric Sports Medicine PodcastGreg Landry: 

Madison, Wisconsin – Dr. Greg Landry has been a primary care sports medicine provider at UW Health, and for the University of Wisconsin athletic teams, for 30 years. He’s seen the field grow by leaps and bounds in his three decades. But when he started, it was a vastly different era.

“Primary care sports medicine was not a very well-known specialty. There were only three fellowship programs in the entire country,” Landry recently recalled about joining the faculty back in 1984. “I was the only primary care sports medicine doctor (at UW) for about 10 years.”
