Alumni-in-Residence: From Amherst College to the NHL, Lunch with Dr. Thierry Pauyo ’05

Join us for lunch and conversation with Dr. Thierry Pauyo ’05, an orthopedic surgeon and former Amherst College hockey player. This is a chance to discuss the challenges and opportunities for student-athletes of color on campus and to share perspectives about that experience. Dr. Pauyo will share his reflections of his time on the hockey team then, as a sports medicine physician for professional hockey teams today and as a player of a sport whose teams have been predominantly white. His perspectives and thoughts of his experiences, together with those of current student-athletes, can inform our understanding of Amherst today.
