The annual sports medicine lecture is named in honor of Ira N. Wolfe, a long time friend to the faculty, residents, fellows, and staff of the New York Orthopaedic Hospital and the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center.
Mr. Wolfe, an athletic trainer and physical education teacher at North Bergen High School has devoted much of his career to the treatment of athletic and orthopedic injuries, as well as care of disabled teenagers. In 2011, his generous donation established this annual lecture, as well as an annual resident research award in sports medicine.
