September 20, 2019

 

Parkview Sports Medicine leader and Ortho Northeast  physician Alan McGee, MD, was honored by the Boys & Girls Club of Fort Wayne as the local organization's Man of the Year. 

Dr. McGee, of SpineONE, received the award and delievered the keynote address at the Boys & Girls Club of Fort Wayne's Passport to Manhood Breakfast on September 20 at the Parkview Mirro Center for Research and Innovation.

"My background is very similar to many of those kids (at Boys & Girls Club)," McGee tells ParkviewSportsMedicine. "Kids who are underprivledged certainly need a place to go. They need to be around people who are like them, but also have the potential be exposed to people who are not like them."

Dr. McGee grew up in Fort Wayne, graduating as North Side High School's salutatorian in 1975. He attended Wright State University, graduating Summa Cum Laude and earning his medical degree with high honors. McGee joined Orthopedics Northeast in 1990 as a spine surgeon. He is an active member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and previously served as the African American Healthcare Alliance. 

"He impacts lives everywhere," Boys & Girls Club of  Fort Wayne president & CEO Joe Jordan says. "When he reached success, he reached a level of significance because he took his success and started lending it to others."

Dr. McGee is the eighth person to receive the the Man of the Year award since the Passport To Manhood program started locally in 2012. Additionally, the organization honors a Young Man of the Year, as well.

Parkview Sports Medicine, Parkview Health & Parkview Physicians Group are proud to have sponsored the Passport To Manhood Breakfast.
