The athletic department at Hilbert College welcomes Greg Peri as the Hawks new athletic trainer beginning the 2013-14 academic year.
Peri brings a varied background related to athletic strength training, injury prevention and rehabilitation. The Cheektowaga native will work with the college’s team doctor, Dr. Jennifer Teeter (Buffalo Orthopaedic Group), to provide complete medical care for approximately 225 student-athletes in Hilbert’s 13 varsity sports.
Peri has certifications and licensures from the National Athletic Trainers Association, the State of New York Education Department and the American Red Cross for First Aid, CPR and AED for the professional rescuer.
Prior to Hilbert, Peri served as a certified Athletic Trainer for both Excelsior Orthopaedics (Clarence High School, 2012-13) and for Catholic Health System (Medaille College, 2011-12). He overlapped his athletic training duties while serving as a Physician Extender at the University at Buffalo Orthopedics from October 2011 to August 2012.
After he graduated from Alfred University (2010) with a bachelor’s of sciences degree in Athletic Training, with a minor in Exercise Science, he jumped right into his profession and worked at the Tonawanda Aquatic & Fitness Center as a Personal Trainer.
Peri completed his Master of Sport Administration from Canisius College in May 2012.
