In Hampton Roads, he began working with local high school and club teams, including the Hampton Roads Piranhas (formerly known as the Hurricanes) and Norfolk and Chesapeake Public Schools. Alongside his partner Dr. Lawrence Shall, Dr. Cohn was a key advocate for students and an instrumental figure in ensuring that Certified Athletic Trainers became a requirement for high school athletic programs in the area.
In his personal life, Dr. Cohn continues to dedicate his time to local student athletes, serving as a high school and club coach, a certified referee, and team physician/consultant for local soccer clubs. He is President of the Hampton Roads Soccer Council, a nonprofit organization, and has worked to develop and implement injury prevention programs for young soccer players in the Tidewater region.
“Dr. Cohn has been an influential member of the AOS and Hampton Roads community. He has played a critical role in advocating for the safety of student athletes throughout the region,” says AOS president Chad R. Manke. “Dr. Cohn will certainly be missed, but his contributions to the well-being of so many in our community will remain an outstanding legacy.”
