at Rowan University since 1986. Certified as an Athletic Trainer in 1982

an AAU national championship in 1994. He has coached a number of sports

These and other experiences helped form an aggressive approach to athletic rehabilitation and reconditioning intended to return the injured athlete to competition as soon as possible. It is believed that one of the most effective forms of medicine is exercise, especially as a preventative. Athletes can use exercise not only to improve their performance, but also to reduce their risk of injury and duration of down time.
Whedon not only applies this philosophy to the treatment of Rowan's very successful athletes, but also in teaching the students enrolled in the Athletic Training Specialization sponsored by the Department of Health and Exercise Science.
