Meyers Family Sports Medicine Center

Recognizing a $2 million gift from the Meyers Farms Family Trust, California State University, Fresno named the Meyers Family Sports Medicine Center to honor Marvin Meyers and his family. The sports medicine facility will feature more than 10,000 square feet of state-of-the-art amenities and equipment for Bulldog student-athletes. This project will allow for on-site physician examination and diagnosis, world class rehabilitation equipment, and ample office and meeting space to support the Fresno State sports medicine staff. The construction of the Meyers Family Sports Medicine Center will greatly enhance the overall athletics infrastructure and, more importantly, will greatly enhance the daily student-athlete experience.
