On Wednesday, August 20, 2014, Alexandria Area High School dedicated its new athletic training room to Dr. Jefferson C. Brand, sports medicine doctor at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists.

“As the cornerstone of our sports medicine program at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, Dr. Brand has worked tirelessly to provide the highest quality sports medicine care to student athletes and patients of all ages in West Central Minnesota,” says Michael S. Doyle, M.B.A., A.T.C., practice administrator at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists. “He is truly deserving of this dedication.”

Since his arrival in Alexandria in 1990, Dr. Brand has remained dedicated to improving the sports medicine care available in the community through the hiring of athletic trainers and the establishment of the sports medicine programming at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, which includes PEAK Performance training programs, ImPACT concussion assessment and event coverage for local schools and events.

“I’m passionate about helping athletes recover from sports-related injuries and return to activity,” Dr. Brand says. “It’s been a joy to work with student athletes and athletes of all ages throughout our community. I’m honored to receive this recognition.”
