Chuck Whedon, MS, ATC/R has been the Coordinator of Athletic Training at Rowan University since 1986. Certified as an Athletic Trainer in 1982 by the National Athletic Trainers' Association Board of Certification, Whedon has had a variety experiences in the sports medicine field. He served as the president of the Athletic Trainers' Society of New Jersey, Inc, and in other executive council offices from 1989 to 1999. He is currently the chair of the Governmental Relations committee. 

He has served as a volunteer athletic trainer for the United states Olympic Committee, working both at the training site in Colorado Springs, and the 1987 Olympic Festival. He has also worked on numerous occasions with the USA World and Olympic Freestyle Wrestling teams. He wrestled competitively himself for 26 years, trying out for the 1984 Olympic Team, and winning an AAU national championship in 1994. He has coached a number of sports at all levels, most notably wrestling, which he still coaches for his son's community recreation

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.
