Siena Athletics Thanks Dr. Marotta
Nov. 8, 2012
Siena College would like to acknowledge and thank Joseph Marotta, MD for his 20-plus years of service to Siena's athletic department and its student athletes. Dr. Marotta has most recently served as Siena's orthopaedic consultant. He recently founded Medicus Christi a non-profit organization with a purpose "to serve and improve the medical and spiritual wellbeing of impoverished peoples of all races and creeds throughout the world." As Medicus Christi grows, Dr. Marotta will continue his leadership role to promote the organization's charitable work by expanding his duties as an administrator, physician, teacher and good will ambassador.
"The fact that Joe wants to be in service to people globally is not surprising," said Siena president Fr. Kevin Mullen, OFM. "Joe has been providing a service to Siena's student athletes for many years and we respect that he is now looking to share his many talents with others. I am very happy that he will continue to be my doctor."
"Joe has served in different roles for Siena athletics over the years and did so because of his concern for Siena, his alma mater, and because he wanted to give back to the college. He assisted us with both MAAC and NCAA tournaments as well." said Director of Athletics John D'Argenio.
"I appreciate the many years that Dr. Marotta has given to Siena in service of our student athletes," said Greg Dashnaw Siena's head athletic trainer. "He has seen many student athletes over the years, administered care to them and provided guidance on their wellbeing."
