    Jennifer M. Medina McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is an assistant professor in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance at Ithaca College in New York. Her academic and research interests include functional anatomy and pathoanatomy, biomechanics, sport injury epidemiology and time-to-event analysis, evidence-based practice, and clinical analysis of risk factors associated with lower-extremity injury. She has received funding from the National Institutes of Health and has presented her research at the local, national, and international levels.

    Patrick O. McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is a BOC-certified athletic trainer who joined the Ithaca College athletic training faculty in 2013. McKeon’s research focuses on functional alterations associated with lower-extremity joint injury, specifically ankle instability. He incorporates patient-, clinician-, and laboratory-oriented outcomes to evaluate alterations that result from injury and rehabilitation. McKeon seeks to develop a greater understanding of the restoration of sensorimotor function associated with musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
