Rosemont, IL – Studying the benefits and hazards of running was just one piece of Dr. Stanley L. James esteemed medical career. He will be inducted into the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Hall of Fame at its’ Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD on Friday, July 13th.

While completing his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Iowa, Dr. James collaborated with exercise physiologist, Charles Tipton PhD.

In 1967, he moved to Oregon to join Dr. Donald Slocum, one of the Fathers of Sports Medicine.

In the early 1970’s, he collaborated with University of Oregon track coach, Bill Bowerman, co-founder of Nike. He was a member of Bowerman’s select think-tank for shoe design. Dr. James is currently involved with state-of-the art biomechanical studies at the University of Oregon on running gait analysis. Dr. James authored 57 publications both in peer-reviewed journals and books and has served as a faculty member and chairman for numerous national and international sports medicine meetings
