Xavier University of Louisiana graduate LaMiah Hall to complete medical rotation with Saints

Hall will join New Orleans sports medicine department during 2024 training camp


In participation with the National Football League's Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative, Xavier University of Louisiana graduate and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center 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, Al. 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's 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.

Hall first developed an interest in sports medicine at Austin High School in Decatur, where she played volleyball and basketball and served as a student athletic trainer.

"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. After the program provided 14 students from four HBCU medical schools the opportunity to complete clinical rotations with eight clubs in 2022, the program has been expanded to where in 2024 it will match students from 21 medical schools with NFL clubs. This is the second year where the Saints will participate in the program after New Orleans native Schyler Morton rotated with the club during the team's 2023 training camp.

New Orleans Saints players participate in Day 3 of 2024 Saints Minicamp at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center on Thursday, June 13, 2024.
