On Saturday, December 3, 2011, the Doisy College of Health Sciences Alumni Association featured its 2nd annual "Blackboard to Backboard" event at Chaifetz Arena prior to the Billikens Men's Basketball game versus the University of Portland. It featured the link between what is being studied in the classroom and what happens on the court and/or field. The theme was concussion management with presentations by faculty members Dr. Anthony Breitbach (Athletic Training), Dr. Christine Werner (Physician Assistant) and Crystal Botkin (Nuclear Medical Technology) as well as a welcome from Dr. Charlotte Royeen, Dean of the the Doisy College. It also consisted of tours of the Chaifetz Arena's sports medicine and strength training facilities, hosted by Jonathan Burch and Erick Schork from SLU athletics. Dinner was also provided in Lorenzini's Restaurant in the arena prior to the 73-53 win by the Billikens.
