Burning Bird 31: Dr. Sommer Hammoud

Friday, June 12

This week, Steve and Shaggy are joined by Phoenix Head Team Physician, Dr. Sommer Hammoud, to talk about Ultimate, health, and safety. Dr. Hammoud reviews the specifics of protecting your knees before returning to Frisbee from quarantine, and of course the hosts ask her to weigh in on how Steve handled his own ACL injury decades ago. The crew also dives into her Division One soccer career at UCLA, her experience working with the Red Sox and the Phillies, and how the Phoenix managed to snag a physician with such impressive qualifications.

All this and more on this weeks episode of the Burning Bird: People of Color in Ultimate Series.
