He is a sports medicine expert and innovator in concussion management, personal fitness and nutrition. As an Ironman triathlete, he lives and breathes his own advice. 

Dr. Maroon joins us to discuss his own athletic journey, his experience doing hyperbaric oxygen therapy, how we can support our brain health, and more. 

“Adversity either kills us or it makes us stronger.” 

“What we ingest, we become to some extent.” 

“In terms of brain preservation, hundreds of studies now show that long term aerobic activity is the best booster.” 

“Sleep is absolutely critical to preserving brain function.” 

“I don’t know what works. All I know is that I’m still here at work having fun.” 

“I’ll leave you with the three most important things in life. Number 1: mental and physical health. Without that, forget it. Number 2: relationships with God, family, friends and colleagues. Number 3: carpe diem.” 

“If tomorrow I pick up the paper and I see my name in the obituary, I will have run the good race, fought the good fight, and kept the faith.”
