When asked about these awards, Dr. Mayer simply says, “I have only one talent. I know how to hire people who are not only better than me, but much better than me. They won the awards, not me.”

His work in each of these areas has resulted in changing the very fabric of patient care.
On September 11, 2001 Dr. Mayer served as the Command Physician at the Pentagon Rescue Operation and has served on 3 Defense Science Board Task Forces, advising the Secretary of Defense.

In sports medicine, his work at the forefront of changing concussion diagnosis and management in the NFL has changed the way in which these athletes are diagnosed and treated.

Fantastic - Dr. Mayer did a masterful job weaving in details about our organization and really understood what our leaders needed to hear. He talked about the things that concerned them the most while also celebrating our highlights. I have worked with speakers for years but never before has one made it so personal, so relevant for our organization. Thank you, Dr. Mayer, for an inspirational and motivational presentation!
HE DID A GREAT JOB. Our folks really liked his presentation.
