Biography

Dr. Hervé Damas MD, MBA is a former professional athlete, strength and conditioning coach, fitness professional and wellness director who has received training in general surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and diagnostic radiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida.  He practices yoga, pumps iron, meditates, eats organic, speaks three languages with his children and believes there’s a universal higher power guiding our existence.

Through sports, Dr. Damas was introduced to the idea that the proper care of your body can increase performance and serve as a deterrent to injury and illness.  As a kid working out, eating healthy, saying his prayers and taking his vitamins (like any true “hulkamaniac”) eventually led to his landing a roster spot with the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League! A very unlikely but true story: from Port Au Prince, Haiti to Brooklyn, NY to the NFL! Who says dreams don’t come true?

Dr Damas will speak on his work helping retired professionals athletes reclaim their health
