A long-time Totem Lake resident received the 2017 American College of Sports Medicine Citation Award at the college’s annual meeting in Denver, Colorado.

Jack Berryman, the award winner and retired professor of orthopedics and sports medicine at the University of Washington (UW), has made significant contributions to sports medicine and exercise sciences according to an Orthopedics This Week article.

Berryman also received the Distinguished Service Award for Exceptional Contributions from the North American Society for Sport History in 1996.
