In conjunction with serving as one of the Official Doctors at the recently-completed Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Dr. Sonya Bryant conducted an interview with the NBC affiliate station (WRC/Washington, D.C.) to provide her professional and personal insights into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Dr. Bryant, who provided medical care to athletes in basketball, boxing, diving, weightlifting and wrestling, told WRC reporter Wendy Rieger that she was selected from more than 100,000 applicants for a position.
