Noel Belcher was originally recruited as an athletic trainer to provide sports medicine coverage for Butler County High School, and he has now been with Med Center Health for 2 years. He believes that MCH Sports Medicine best serve patients and athletes by working collaboratively as a team. Everyone in the department communicates effectively to ensure all patient and athletes needs are met. As the Sports Outreach Coordinator, Noel gets to work with a long list of great coaches and administrators who genuinely care for their athletes, and he loves working to help each athlete optimize their performance through injury prevention. In his spare time, he enjoys watching and playing a long list of sports and also cooking when he gets the chance.
