Dr. Ben Cook

"Dr. Cook is a great "FAN" of SOMO! His involvement started as a Clinical Director for two Healthy Athletes disciplines, Medfest and Health Promotion, as the health of our SOMO athlete is of great importance to him. His love of SOMO spread to his colleagues at Jefferson City Medical Group, as they became involved as a Health Partner and giving of their time to make a difference. Dr. Cook also has enjoyed having several teams participate in the "SOMO Superhero Bocce" Unified tournament annually. Now he continues his journey as a SOMO Board Member. Thank you, Dr. Cook, for all that you do!

It has been rewarding to see someone grow with SOMO through his involvement with the athletes. Beginning with sharing his professional health knowledge, enjoying Unified sports on the field, and now getting to see the overall picture of the importance of SOMO as a member of the Board of Directors. Thank you, Dr. Cook, for giving of your time and being a friend to all!"
