Presidential Guest Speaker
AOSSM and AANA welcome Heisman Trophy winner and NFL great Eddie George to the Combined 2021 Annual Meeting. AOSSM and AANA leaders Michael G. Ciccotti, MD and Brian J. Cole, MD, MBA, will lead a Fireside Chat with Eddie focusing on the many facets of his exceptional career on and off the football field. Join us Friday, July 9, 1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. for this exciting conversation!
His football accomplishments are legendary. A Heisman Trophy winner and first-round draft choice out of Ohio State, earning Rookie of the Year honors in 1996, it only got better.
Starting running back for the Tennessee Titans until 2003, he was selected to four consecutive Pro Bowls, still owns virtually every Titans rushing record, and led his team to Super Bowl XXXIV before retiring after a final campaign in 2004 with the Dallas Cowboys. Adding to his already impressive football resume, Eddie was announced as the 22nd head football coach of the Division 1 Tennessee State University Tigers on April 13, 2021.
Off the field, Eddie has pursued many passions. Including an MBA at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, launching the Edward George Wealth Management Group, a Professor at the Fisher School of Business at The Ohio State University, acting on Broadway as Billy Flynn in Chicago, The Tamara & Edward George Legacy Foundation, completed by industry thought leader presentations.
