Congrats to Dr Marshall!!!   Dr. David Marshall was recently featured on the cover of Canton Family Life magazine. He will also be featured on the November cover of Woodstock Family Life magazine.

Furthermore, CBS National recently interviewed Dr. Marshall for a segment that aired on more than 150 CBS stations nationwide. Following the tragic injury that lead to the recent death of another high school football player, there has been an increased interest and awareness in the risk of internal injuries (specifically the liver and spleen) to our young athletes, epecially in contact sports such as football. Dr. Marshall gave incredible answers to the reporters' questions and we at COA are especially proud of him.  He assured that while internal abdominal injuries are a possibility, they are not as common as other injuries such as concussions.
