Tamara C. Valovich McLeod, PhD, ATC, FNATA
Professor and Director, Athletic Training Program, A.T. Still University
National expert on sport-related concussion

Dr. Tamara McLeod is a national expert on concussion and leads ATSU’s Concussion Program. A passionate advocate for youth sports safety, her research focuses on the pediatric athlete and sport related concussion.

Approximately 7,000 Arizona high school athletes suffer a concussion each year. Many more occur at the youth level; however there is a lack of on-site medical providers in club and community sports and therefore, many concussions go unreported, especially in underserved communities.

Dr. McLeod wants to help young athletes play safe by making smart choices. Under her leadership, ATSU’s Concussion Program has provided direct baseline testing services for over 10,000 youth from 2009-2013.

Dr. McLeod earned a PhD in education with an emphasis in sports medicine from the University of Virginia and has a master’s degree in kinesiology from the university of Colorado. She is a widely published author, reviewer and a fellow of the national Athletic Trainer’s Association.
