NFL Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative

Congratulations to LaMiah Hall in the School of Medicine










In participation with the National Football League’s Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative, LSU Health New Orleans medical student LaMiah Hall will complete a clinical rotation with the New Orleans Saints sports medicine department during 2024 training camp.


Hall is a Decatur, Alabama native who attended Xavier from 2015-20 both as an undergraduate and graduate student. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2019 and received her Master of Public Health in 2020. Upon coming to New Orleans as a college student, she involved herself in the community by volunteering in the New Orleans nonprofit STEM NOLA, a national leader in the design and delivery of STEM-based activities, programs and events to K-12 students, families, and communities. From 2019-21, Hall served in a position as the organization’s operations coordinator and continues to volunteer while continuing her medical studies. She is currently a student at LSU Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in New Orleans, scheduled to graduate in 2025 with an interest in orthopedic surgery.


“As a medical student passionate about orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, I am thrilled to participate in the NFL Diversity Program,” said Hall. “This program not only allows me to contribute to the health and safety of athletes, but also promotes diversity within the NFL healthcare network. I am eager to be part of this initiative and explore the field of sports medicine through the lens of professional athletics.”


The Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative is a joint program of the National Football League, NFL Physicians Society (NFLPS) and Professional Athletic Trainers Society (PFATS). The goal of the initiative is to increase the pipeline of diverse students interested in careers in sports medicine. The program will match students from 21 medical schools with NFL clubs. This is the second year where the Saints will participate in the program.
