 Building on a successful partnership in 2012, the Keck Medical Center of USC will once again serve as the official medical team for this year’s Asics LA Marathon, which will take place on March 17. As part of a multiyear agreement, Keck Medical Center doctors and staff will oversee care and treatment to runners along the course from start to finish.

Keck Medical Center physicians will supervise medical staff and supplies at mobile medical tents along the course, at the finish line, post-finish area and the family reunion area. The USC team will also provide training to the nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians and athletic training volunteers who will staff the marathon on race day. The 2014 Los Angeles Marathon is one of the biggest races in the United States, and the excitement surrounding the 26.2-mile main event and all of the other supporting challenges make this much more than a one-day party!
