Gwinnett Medical and Gwinnett Sports Commission Announce Georgia Gwinnett College Donation

Gwinnett Medical and Gwinnett Sports Commission Announce Georgia Gwinnett College Donation
Gwinnett Medical Center (GMC)-Duluth recently announced a gift
from the Gwinnett Sports Commission benefitting Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC). With the gift, 
an athletic transporter will be purchased so that injured athletes can be moved safely and securely 
A transporter is an all-terrain vehicle that can navigate fields without aggravating the athlete’s 
injuries. Previously, the athletic program shared a transporter with other departments; the new 
vehicle will be dedicated to athletics.
“In a few short years, GGC has developed an athletic program that provides the regime young 
athletes desire while reinforcing respect and integrity,” said Stan Hall, Gwinnett Sports Commission 
president. “Through GMC’s foundation and their sports medicine program, the Gwinnett Sports 
Commission wanted to fill any gaps related to safer play; the transporter gift was the solution.” 
“Our involvement with GGC has grown steadily to provide them additional resources they need to 
treat student athletes,” said Tim Simmons, GMC-Duluth’s director of sports medicine. “This gift will 
help us see that they receive the proper medical attention quickly and effectively.” 
The transporter will arrive to GGC by the first of February and will be available for baseball, tennis 
and softball seasons.
