A Tribute and Thank you to the Patellofemoral Foundation Executive Director Eric Dahlinger
Eric Dahlinger was one of the four founders of the Patellofemoral Foundation in 2003, along with Ivan Lendl, Peter Jokl, and John Fulkerson. After serving on the board and developing the foundation, he was appointed unanimously by the Board to be Executive Director of the Foundation based on his loyal hard work, experience, commitment and outstanding leadership skills. He has played and continues to play a major critical role in the successes of the Patellofemoral Foundation, well loved by many, especially those who work with him on the Board. We are very fortunate that Eric is our Executive Director!

The Board of Directors of the Patellofemoral Foundation has voted to offer the position of Executive Director to Mr. Eric Dahlinger.
