Some of these improvements include renovations and upgrades to the athletic training rooms in both the Charles Wyly Athletic Complex and the Thomas Assembly Center, the creation of additional positions within the sports medicine staff, and the creation of Docs for Dogs -- a team of local specialty doctors that serve all of the LA Tech student-athletes.
