The College of Medicine sponsored last Saturday’s 30-3 football victory by UCF against Boston College with stadium signs, a Jumbotron video welcome and the unveiling of the new “Healthy Days & Knights” campaign.

Dr. Deborah German, vice president of medical affairs and dean of the College of Medicine, received the game ball on the field of Bright House Stadium and was interviewed live at halftime by UCF ISP Radio Network.

As they stood on the sidelines before the presentation, Dr. German and her father, Pat Campano, joked that she was going to “go long” for her father’s touchdown pass. When she received the game ball, Dr. German surprised everyone by stepping back and throwing a completed pass to her dad. Fans on the field and in the stands were delighted.

Before the game, M-1 students Jae Park, Maliha Beg and Mark Siegel joined Dr. Abdo Asmar, assistant professor of internal medicine, in a video introduction to the game and a “Go Knights” cheer.

The new “Healthy Days & Knights” campaign brings College of Medicine recognition during UCF football, basketball and baseball seasons with a variety of programs, including tips on living a healthier lifestyle. The tips are currently airing on football Coach George O’Leary’s television and radio shows.
